Me. I tend to like a glass of wine at night or a small cocktail… he is not much of a drinker at all. As a result, yes, it’s equalizing. I’m drinking much less often, and he has a glass once in a great while himself.

I drink more often – I tend to socialize with friends or colleagues after work at least once a week (which Fiance doesn’t get to do, he’s a medical resident).  I also get to spend more time with friends on the weekend (again, Fiance has less time for this) which usually involves a drink or two.  My socializing/drinking has basically stayed the same because he is not usually around when I socialize.  Ie, I make my plans for nights when he has to work.  When we go out together, though, we usually consume about the same amount.

I’d say w’ere about equal. It has taken awhile to get to this point as we started dating in college when we drank… more. Today it is more equal though it tends to be that I drink more often (class of wine here, cocktail after work there) while he may drink more at any one sitting. This works out pretty well and I’m glad we’re a little more tame than in college 🙂

I drink more than Fiance but only because he doesn’t drink at all. Not beer, not wine and no liquor. I am not a huge drinker myself, I would have half a glass of wine with dinner occasionally and few drinks when we go out, maybe once a week.

He hates alcohol in all forms and doesn’t drink ever. I have something to drink MAYBE once a month. It’s rare. So we’re pretty equal. Though I know it would have been a serious relationship issue if I drank very often.

That would def. be the significant other. Until I met him, I had never been drunk before (a lot of that was age, though, its not that he turned me into a raging alcoholic )

My Fiance made a promise to himself when he was 12 that he would never drink, smoke, or do drugs (because of problems his family had with those substances) and he never has. He’s okay with people who drink in moderation, thank goodness, because I certainly do! I socially drink, but it’s in definite moderation.

Him for sure! I’m a light weight.  But he drinks a lot less since we met.

I will get totally smashed maybe 2 or 3 times a year. (New years, my birthday, my bestfriends birthday) And not drink anything else all year long.

He will have a beer everynight after work, so it balances out

We are about equal, although I think he has a few more drinks than me when we go out, but he is also 70 pounds more than me!

We drink a glass of wine almost every night with dinner. We go out on the weekends and usually get a bottle with dinner and then meet our friends out.

Ha! We both drink a little too much. When we met I was just getting over my black-out-as-often-as-possible phase and he was still in his. Now we keep all wildness to the weekends and are much more likely to go for a nice bottle of wine than a pitcher or shots. He still drinks more. Trying to keep up is trouble for me.

My Fiance definitely drinks more. I am a lighweight and have alcoholism in my family, so I usually keep it to weekends and only a couple drinks. My Fiance was a huge partier (sp?) before we met and still likes to have fun with his friends, but the frequency has definitely gone way down since we met. He just gave up weekday beers (he used to have maybe one a night) for lent, which is good for the wedding diet!

It’s definitely me. He doesn’t even like the taste of alcohol!

We  drink about the same so no arguments there.  We drink for social occassions and if and when there is actually liquor/alcohol at our house we drink casually.
