Men and Women Approach Drinking Differently After Marriage

Men who drink tend to do so less once they marry, while women tend to increase their drinking after marriage. Researchers found married men reported consuming the lowest number of drinks compared with single, divorced and widowed men. The researchers analyzed survey data from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study to explore population trends in the relationship between marriage and alcohol.

The study also found no matter what marital category the men were in — single, married, divorced or widowed — men drank more than women and had a higher proportion of drinking-related problems. However, recently divorced men reported consuming a significantly greater average number of drinks than men in long-term marriages.

Women who were recently divorced or had been divorced for a long time reported more drinking-related problems.
