While both men and women have shown weight gain after getting married, men are more likely to pack on the pounds. While less than one-half of women reported significant weight gain, 7 out of 10 men admitted to adding numbers to the scale.

At first, people have attributed the phenomenon to comfort. Once you’re married, the pressure is off and you can get comfortable. But studies have shown there’s a deeper reason behind weight gain with couples that is food-related.
