…according to a link I found in an article at Huffington Post. An excerpt:
A 2011 Ohio State study found that weight gain of about 20 pounds is average among people who get married (especially for women), and according to Texas healthcare professional Judy Gaman, there are lot of good explanations for the increase. In the video above, she explains that after the wedding, lifestyle patterns change, leading to more food consumed and less activity.
One major culprit is television. Gaman said married people tend to watch more T.V., since they’re not just watching the shows that they personally want to watch.
