You might not believe it when you hear it the first time but the fact is couples who truly love each other tend to gain weight.
Well, that’s not just a hypothesis, there is an evidence behind this fact. According to a lot of researches, scientists gathered data from many happy couples and found an amazing thing in common – all of them gained weight as compared to when they were single.
Let us show you some of those studies carried out by researchers and their proven results.
1) The first research was carried out by professors of the University of North Carolina where they surveyed around 8,000 people.
They found out that married couple gains almost 24 pounds during the first 5-6 years of their marriage. And this weight gain can be seen more often in women.
The research also proved that boys gained almost 50 pounds in 2 years when they started living with their partners than those who did not live with partners. That showed that the body gains weight during the transition from being single to being in a relationship.

2) There is another research conducted by scholars at the National Institute of Health, with the aim to find out whether there is a relationship between the weight gains in married couples and their happiness. They wanted to know whether the weight gain is a sign of a happy life or if it reflects the other way round.
This study only focused on couples who were married for more than 4 years.The research concluded again the same results that the happy couples tend to gain weight after marriage, and this weight gain is especially visible in the first 2 years of married life.
(shows that happiness is indirectly proportional to the # of years of married life) :D
