Many women (as well as men) gain weight in marriage or long-term cohabitation. You may also be one of them.
What is the reason? Here is what scientists say.
Why do we gain weight in marriage?
Science claims that your permanent partner is indirectly to blame for your weight gain. The emotional shift that occurs with falling in love leads to a change in brain chemistry, which can affect weight.
When you first start dating, almost everything you do together is exciting. The novelty increases the release of the hormone, dopamine, which makes people more active and helps to maintain normal weight (or even leads to weight loss!)
But in a stable, long-term relationship, people feel more relaxed. This causes the production of oxytocin, a hormone responsible for a feeling of deep attachment.
