Love kilos

The Swedish value of equality manifested itself recently in some interesting research.

Research released from Ohio State University has shown that in heterosexual marriages in the USA, women tend to put on a few kilos after marriage. Men, however, tend to put on weight after a divorce.

Apparently, this is not the case in Sweden. According to experts at Karolinska Institute, it isn’t only women who increase in weight after a marriage. It is both men and women. There’s equality for you!

In Swedish, these extra kilos even have a name – ‘kärlekskilo’ (love kilos) or ‘trivselkilo’ (satisfaction kilos).

So the extra weight deosn’t sound that bad then does it?
