Marriage can curb drinking problem

Tue, Aug 04, 2015, 12:54 PM
New York, Aug 4: If you are young and already having a drinking problem, finding a partner to tie the knot may help you return to a normal life again, new research suggests.

Marriage can cause dramatic reductions among young people with severe drinking problems, the findings showed.

The researchers used previously collected data from a long-term, ongoing study of familial alcohol disorders.

They examined how the drinking rates of the participants changed as they aged from age 18 to 40, and how this change was affected by whether or not participants became married.

About 50 percent of the participants included in the study of familial alcoholism were children of alcoholics.

"Confirming our prediction, we found that marriage not only led to reductions in heavy drinking in general, this effect was much stronger for those who were severe problem drinkers before getting married," said one of the researchers Matthew Lee from University of Missouri in the US.
