According to the study, the couples weigh more than single people - despite having healthier lifestyles and eating more fruit and vegetables.

Lead author Stephanie Schoeppe said that the reason behind this could be that they no longer need to impress potential suitors.

And she also warned that children could only add or more or less worsen the weight problems, as parents tend to munch on their 'leftovers and snacks.'

When couples don't need to look attractive and slim to attract a partner, they may feel more comfortable in eating more food rich in fat.

The study showed that the weight gain is not because of the healthy lifestyle, as most of the couples consumed more fruit and steered clear of fast food, alcohol, and cigarettes. However, experts believe the reason behind this comfort weight could be that 'couples are eating more of all food types together.'
