“Heavy drinking, ‘incompatible’ drinking tied to divorce, study says”

“Here’s something to ponder if and when you and your spouse make your Valentine’s Day toasts this year: when it comes to drinking — as in so many other facets of marriage — compatibility may be key to keeping couples together.”

“Alcohol and romantic relationships: A good or bad mix?”

“Drinking plays an important and sometimes unexpected role from one day to the next in young couples’ romantic relationships, according to a new study by University at Buffalo and University of Missouri researchers.”

How do we know that correlation means causation here? It could just be that couples participating in any activities together, including but not restricted to drinking, are just closer couples than couples who don't spend time together.

I don't drink, I don't smoke and I don't do drugs… unlike most people around me

That sounds like a personal problem.

seems legit

Totally agree with the bit about couples needing to be on the same level. I know personally, how much a girl drinks plays a role in whether or not I am interested in dating them.

It's cause of DRUNKEN SEX!

Elizabeth Battley January 12, 2014 - 6:19 AM

I think I must agree. I don't drink and my boyfriend got drunk last night. Lets just say we didn't have the best time together

Jessica Abernethy January 14, 2014 - 3:56 AM

What if the couples both don't drink? I suppose it means that since we both do not drink, we both drink the same amount?

I should probably try to find ways to keep my stepmom from drinking beer to relieve her of stress. I may love her, but man, I don't want to be near her when she gets drunk.

Is there a difference between love of the opposite sex and the same sex? in all ways?

dodopoopinpoop October 12, 2014 - 9:21 PM

DRUNKEN LOOOOOOOOVE!!! XD

So by California's definition, a couple who rapes each other, stays together.

Robert Weekes October 25, 2014 - 3:11 AM

Trinity Gnosis November 29, 2014 - 11:28 AM
