One bed - one habbit

Individuals converge on health habits throughout the course of their relationship because an unhealthy habits directly promote unhealthy habits of others

Stable couples, both heterosexual and homosexual, tend to catch the bad habits either smoking, unhealthy diets and lack of exercise, according to a study by the University of Cincinnati (USA).

The findings contradict the popular belief that "for better or for worse, in health or disease" stable married life helps to reduce bad habits and promotes both a better diet and regular medical checks.

For their study, researchers surveyed 122 people who lived or had lived with a partner for periods ranging from eight to 52 years. Of these, 31 were heterosexual couples who were married or cohabiting, 15 were homosexual couples, another 15 were lesbians.

Participants were asked individually about habits like smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, sleep patterns and rest, exercise habits and other health practices. Reczek said that unhealthy habits are promoted within these intimate relationships due to poor direct influence of one of the people through the synchronicity of the health habits, and through the notion of personal responsibility.

All couples without exception were references to the "bad influence", but heterosexual couples "bad influence" almost always attributed to man. "The conclusion that one of the members of the couple is a 'bad direct influence' indicates that individuals converge on health habits throughout the course of their relationship because an unhealthy habits directly promote unhealthy habits of others," the study added.

One example is that both members of the couple have an unhealthy diet because they both eat what one purchases or cooks. "The gay couples described almost exclusively as the habits of both partners are promoted simultaneously due to the synchronicity of unhealthy habits," Reczek said. In these cases, one of the members does not make for himself in an unhealthy habit but considers "when his penchant for such a habit is coupled with their partner, they share the unhealthy habit."

Respondents also resorted to the argument of personal responsibility to describe how, when they see their partner incurs an unhealthy habit, do not try to change thereby become accomplices of the unhealthy habit of your partner.
