A recent study has confirmed what many of us have long thought... Men put on weight after they tie the knot!
The study leader said “Those in relationships may eat more regular meals and/or richer and denser foods due to social obligations, which may arise because of marriage."
So while married men tend to put on at least 1 kg, single guys make more of an effort to stay slim and fit to help attract a partner.
“Individuals who are on the matching market have higher incentives and exert more effort to stay fit than individuals who are already or still married, resulting in higher BMI among married individuals than those not married.”
The study found little change in the weight of women after marriage.
