Both marriage and divorce can act as “weight shocks,” leading people to add a few extra pounds — especially among those over age 30 — according to a new study. But when it comes to large weight gains, the effects of marital transitions are quite different for men than they are for women.

For men, the risk of a large weight gain increased most prominently after a divorce. But for women, the risk of a large weight gain was most likely after marriage.
