Recent study published shows link between drinking and divorce

According to an extensive research study from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health on numerous couples, married couples who often drink alcoholic beverages have more chances of being divorced as compared to other couples who only drink occasionally. Additionally, the findings showed that the chances of divorce also increase if only one person in the couple drinks, a fact that was particularly true when only the woman drank.

The Los Angeles Times recently reported that couples in which both partners are both light drinkers only divorced 5.8 percent of the time. Furthermore, a study recently done by researchers from the University of Texas at Austin, University of Cincinnati, Pennsylvania State University, and Rutgers University found that marriage and divorce influences the drinking patterns of couples in different ways.
