This new study found that if a couple is drinking together in moderation that they tend to be more happy, but if only one of them is drinking well it's a less of a good time. 

The results showed that in more than half of couples, both spouses drank. Husbands were more likely to drink than wives. But particularly for wives, there was a problem when only one of the spouses drank. When wives drank and the husbands didn't, wives reported they were more dissatisfied with their marriage.

The study also showed that partners influence each other in a relationship. The study author said spouses have a huge impact on each other, so when one spouse has to stop drinking, the other should stop as well.
