Boyfriends and Girlfriends
We’ve heard for a long time how married people are generally happier and healthier overall. Now new research published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior shows that stable relationships can have much the same benefits for young adults in romantic relationships, too. In the study, researchers followed people from early elementary school through two years after college. They found that at age 19 or 20, someone who was in a stable relationship was much less likely to use marijuana or drink heavily than someone who was not in a relationship. There could be many reasons for this. Relationships give us support that can help us avoid substances we don’t really need. And when we’re spending time with a partner, we’re less likely to be hanging out in bars. Having a person in our lives who is like-minded and enjoys the same healthy behavior patterns as we do can influence our lives in many positive ways.
