CONNECTICUT- Indiana University School of Education conducted a study slated for publication in the April 20111 issue of Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research which indicates early alcohol use directly correlates to the age a person gets married.

In addition, the study suggests that those who are dependent on alcohol tend to have early separations once they are married.

We've always known that alcohol dependence causes myriad problems, begins a spokesperson for Mountainside Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Center. However, studies such as these further emphasize what we have said all along: alcoholism affects the lives of everyone with whom the alcoholic is involved. Alcohol use puts a strain on marriages financially, emotionally, mentally as well as socially. Every single aspect of an individuals' life is impacted by alcoholism. Alcohol use of a potential spouse is certainly an important point to consider prior to making the decision to enter into such a serious commitment and, if you're loved one needs alcoholism treatment, it's best to know that from the outset.

The Summary Health Statistics for U.S. Adults showed that 52% of adults, 18 years and older, were current regular drinkers, consuming at least 12 drinks in the past year. In addition, 13% of adults 18 years and older were infrequent drinkers, consuming 1-11 drinks in the past year. In addition, statistics for alcohol use tended to go down as a person got older.
