Is drinking wine one secret to a happy marriage?

News Opinion

I read an article by Mari A. Schaefer titled “Is drinking wine one secret to a happy marriage?”. This article was based on a recent report in The Journals of Gerontology. The gist of the story is that couples that drink wine together are happier. Duh. Who isn’t happier with wine? Let me see if I can break this story down more.

The study looked at 2,767 heterosexual couples who both drank wine. I’m not sure if the results would be different in a LGBT relationship and since all my personal experience is in heterosexual marriages, yes plural, I’ll stick to analyzing those covered in the study.
