 Study Says Marriage Makes Men Fat and Lazy

An interesting new study has found that marriage makes men fat. According to the study, getting married can change men's eating habit and their waistlines.

The study, conducted by Leeds Metropolitan University, found that married men are fatter than their single counterparts. This could be because they develop a sweet tooth - with married men treating themselves to more buns, cakes, pastries and fruit pies than unmarred men.


The study adds that those who have tied the knot were also likely to drink 'significantly' more wine. Researchers were not sure why marriage made such a difference to men's attitude to their weight, but one finding was that they felt they could relax after their wedding day.

Another philosophy was that men who marry a good cook might think they are eating richer food than in the past. Some wives deliberately overfeed their husbands, with the aim of making them unattractive to other women.

Tam Fry, from the National Obesity Forum, says that the woman wants to please the man, but it is up to the man to choose whether he wants to be a slob.

However despite all the dispiriting news for married men, the findings of the study were not all bad. The researchers found married men ate more fruit and wholemeal bread than single ones.

Also, those who have left their single days behind them got through fewer fatty kebabs and burgers. Researchers also found that men who were coupled up ate more yoghurt than men who had gone through a divorce, and that married men ate more chocolate than widowers.
