Research: Effective Factors in Marital Satisfaction

Some married people can perceive their weight gain in the first, second or even tenth year of a long-term relationship.
A number of these people say the reason is routine, or more snacks, while others point to a lack of exercise.
Whatever the reason, the researchers wanted to know if weight gain in the conjugal relationship was real, and clearly so.
Over the past few years, two studies in particular have pointed out that the things we love about life lead to weight gain.

Research shows that people who are satisfied with their marital relationships are healthier. In other words, it can be said: happy wife, healthy life.
But in July 2013, researchers at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas studied 169 new couples for four years and found something quite different.
People who are less happy in their relationship are more likely to lose weight. Couples who are satisfied with their marital relationship are in fact less likely to follow their weight because they do not look forward to leaving their partner. They are happy and comfortable with how things go.
"Satisfaction is positively associated with weight gain, and the couple who are satisfied tend to gain more weight," says lead author Andrea Meltzer.
In another study, published in February 2018 in PLOS One, a 10-year journal of 15,000 Australians, researchers wanted to see if people in relationships were more likely to gain weight than those who were single.
The main investigator, Stephanie Schoppe, found that single men had an average weight gain of 1.8 kg per year, while husbands gained an average weight gain of 5.8 kg. But why?
Interestingly, data from 2005-2014 revealed that although couples smoke less, drink less alcohol, and eat less fatty foods than single people, husbands' weight levels are still higher.
The researchers say that when couples do not need to attract a partner, they may feel more comfortable eating more, or eating more foods high in fat and sugar.
Of course, there are many factors to consider when determining the cause of weight gain. This can include: stress, eating habits, drinking, daily physical activity and sitting habits.
Whatever the root causes, it is important for individuals, especially couples, to create an environment conducive to promoting a healthy lifestyle.
