Avoid These 8 Foods on Your First Date to Ensure a Lasting Marriage

Relationship experts agree that the secret to a long-lasting relationship is open and honest communication. But a 2021 survey conducted by a UK-based e-commerce site showed that the food a couple eat on their first date might determine whether or not their relationship ends up in divorce-land.

Based on this study, Bright Side has made a list of the types of cuisine you should steer clear of on your first encounter with a potential partner. Flip the card to find out the divorce rate and average marriage length resulting from each type of food!

BONUS: Eat these instead

According to the same study, Italian, French, and Mediterranean cuisines proved to be the safest bets for a first date meal in ensuring a long-lasting marriage!

But of course, as this study was not conducted by a scientific institution per se, it’s better to take it with a pinch of salt. Ultimately, what matters more than the actual food is how the couple enjoys each other’s company on a first date. Have thoughts on this study? Share them with us in the comments!
