Marriage Before Finishing College = Fat

Here’s an interesting little nugget…

A new study has refined the longstanding view that earning a college degree is associated with positive health trends, such as not becoming obese. On this health factor, the key is earning a degree before getting married, according to a new study. It found that those who get married before they earn a college degree are 65 percent more likely to become obese than are those who earn a degree and then get married. The research appears in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
