If you need a reason to celebrate with babe, with a glass of alcohol, this one may be that reason!

A study published in The Journals of Gerontology Series B: Psychological Series said that one's drinking habits are an indicator of how satisfied you are in a relationship. But fair warning, you guys, because they conducted the study on married couples, so read this with a grain of salt. (via Bustle.com)

Anywaaay, the study was done on 4,864 married couples who've been married for more than three decades (!!!) and found that those who drank together had less "negative relationship quality" over time. The things the experts looked into: how often each person drank, how much they drank together, and how demanding or critical they think their partners are.

The experts found that those who drank together (or did not drink together) had less negative interaction compared to those who drank alone. Ohhh. How interesting!
