The Key to a Happy Marriage Is . . . When the Guy Likes His In-Laws

The Key to a Happy Marriage Is . . . When the Guy Likes His In-Laws

Are you wondering if your boyfriend is marriage material? Here’s a hint: If he’s ever said, “Wow, I sure do hate your mom” . . . then no, he’s not.

A new study out of the University of Michigan just found that married couples are happier if the guy has a good relationship with his wife’s parents. It’s much less important for the woman to get along with her husband’s parents.

The researchers think it’s because an adult woman tends to be closer to her parents than a man, so when her husband likes them, that eliminates a potentially huge source of stress and conflict.

If I were ever going to commit to gaining 500 pounds, THIS just might be the calorie delivery method I would go with.

McDonald’s in Italy just created a brand new Nutella burger. Basically, it’s just a hamburger bun with a “patty” made entirely out of Nutella. There’s no meat, just a massive amount of chocolate spread.

Unfortunately, because they hate money, they probably won’t bring the burger over to the United States.

A Hot Bath Is Just As Good For You As Exercising?

A Hot Bath Is Just As Good For You As Exercising?

If you HATE exercising, but like the idea of, you know, burning a few calories once in a while . . . consider this an early Christmas present.

A new study out of Loughborough University in England found that taking a HOT BATH can give you pretty much all of the same effects as exercising.

The researchers found that a hot bath reduces your blood pressure, gets your metabolism going, AND burns calories.

A half hour in a hot tub burned 140 calories, which is the same as a half hour walk.

Now, a bath doesn’t burn as many calories as more intense exercise, and there are plenty of other health benefits you can only get from exercising . . . but getting into a hot tub is definitely better than nothing.

According to the researchers, your body releases proteins when it’s exposed to exercise OR heat . . . which is why exercise and baths have similar effects.
