The study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, also found that they are 9lbs heavier if she has a baby.

Queensland University in Australia, who conducted the research, followed 6,000 women aged between 18 and 23 over a 10 year period ending in 2006. Each woman periodically completed a survey with questions about weight, height, age, physical activity and alcohol consumption among others.

It found that a 10st woman gained 11lbs if she was single and childless, but she would be 15lbs heavier if she had a partner, and 20lbs heavier if she had both a partner and a baby.

The researchers attributed the weight gain to cohabiting women eating unhealthier food because of their partner, while they also have less time to exercise.

Professor Annette Dobson, who co-authored the study along with Professor Wendy Brown and Richard Hockey, said: "This is a general health concern as obesity rates continue to increase.

"Getting married or moving in with a partner and having a baby are events that trigger even further weight gain. We must look at ways to prevent health risks by focusing on the times when women need to be especially careful."

He said to her . .. .. "Why are married women heavier than single women"?
She said to him . . . "Single women come home, see what's in the fridge and then go to bed. Married women come home, see what's in bed and then they go to the fridge".
