A new survey by Dalhousie University finds that romantic partners tend to follow each other's drinking habits. Therefore, if one person tends to binge drink, the other tends to follow suit.
The research looked at 208, heterosexual couples where at least one of the people was a college student. All of couples had been dating at least three months, but most had been dating an average of two years.
"In some respect this is a cautionary piece of research. Pick your friends and lovers carefully because they influence you more than you think,” says Dr. Simon Sherry.
