Marriage can make you 'fat'
LONDON: People who marry are up to three times more likely to become obese than those who just keep dating, according to a new study.

According to the study, soon after a groom carries his bride over the threshold both end up carrying extra weight, reports the Daily Express.

Moving in with a romantic partner also increased the odds of obesity, but there were interesting nuances by sex: for women, the risk increased after just one year of living together, while for men the risk kicked in between the first and second year.

Couples blamed a lack of exercise, watching too much television and an over-use of computers.

The study has been published in the US medical journal Obesity.
