You’ll know a happy couple, if you’ve seen one. Have you ever asked yourself why happy couples gain so much throughout their relationship?
Science might just have an answer for that, the fact that you have a big waistline means that both of you in the relationship are satisfied and really happy.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, happy couples and those who are really satisfied with their partners tend to add some mass just because of the mere fact that they are not pressured to look good to their partner.
169 couples participated in this experiment for four years. The dependent variables were height, weight, stress, marital satisfaction, and steps toward divorce. These variables were recorded twice a year. Then researchers have concluded that happiness causes extra weight.
The research also found out that those who wanted to maintain their figure are not that satisfied with their relationship.
