Trust me, one of the signs you’ve found “the one” comes from the fun you two have drinking together. Hot summer day, day drinking, maybe a little 90’s country – it doesn’t get any better.
The study, published in the Journals of Gerontology Series B: Psychological Series, found that couples who drink together report being a lot happier with their partner and their relationship than those who sit there all lame and shit.
For the study, researchers surveyed 4,864 married people, with the average relationship being 33 years. Participants were asked how often they drink in a week, and how much they drink each time they pop a bottle. All very important questions.
Analysis of the data showed that the quantity the couples drank didn’t matter, nor did the number of times per week. What really mattered was that if they were going to drink, they loved to do it together.
