    Women live down to their mate's expectations more often than not, so that their husbands are not intimidated. If they are too smart, then husbands are threatened. If they are too sexual, then husbands are suspicious. If they make too much money, then husbands are angry. It goes on and on. Women are rarely just themselves, living under a man's limited point of view of who they should be on so many levels. Who wouldn't drink?

    Think again. Hear it all the time. What's interesting, is most of the men are clueless. Hence the drinking.

    Perhaps, just maybe they married the wrong person. So many women rush men into relationships that are not founded on true friendship.

    I've never been married so I can't speak from personal experience. But I haven't observed any changes in my married friends' drinking habits. I don't see the corelation.

    SIGH ..
    another day .. another 'study' ..
    too bad we can't look at the raw data (and the hypotheses/questions .. ) to clearly research and make a determination on the worth of this 'study' ..

    I know many people who are married and they don't drink and if they do then its not a lot. Maybe 2 glasses of champagne. I know more people who drink heavily and aren't even married

    People who drink and do drugs have no excuse unless someone physically forced addiction on them.

    No, I do not agree! I do know, that if you're not happy in your marriage, it will drive you to something! Marriage is about compromising and sharing equal responsibilities,in order to make a marriage work!

    I don't think it drives them to drink so much as lets them drink more because they are more comfortable and don't have to watch themselves all the time.

    Possibly, as a stress reliever or due to social drinking as a couple.

    None of the married women in my family drink. Mom has been married to Dad 54+ years - she never had a drink.
