Topic: Why are women drinking more [TEMP HEAD]
For many women, wine is an indulgence for busy mothers who want a break, but they are not the only ones indulging. More women are drinking now than anytime in history, according to recent health studies. Women buy the majority of the wine sold in the U.S. annually, according to the wine institute. Between 1998 and 2007, the number of women arrested for drunk driven rose 30%, while male dropped more than 7%. This is not just limited to young adults and college students, a recent Gallup poll found 10% of women 45 and 64 binge drink. Groups like, “Moms who Need Wine,” and “OMG, I So Need a Glass of Wine or I’m Gonna Sell My kids,” have thousands of fans on facebook. Drinks are often linked to female targeted shows like the women on ‘Real Housewives.” But why the massive growth? Some believe the rise in female drinking is due to the changing social role of women. Some social scientists link the growth to the rise in female college attendance, and women then leaving their careers to be at home.Why are women drinking more? Is there a greater stigma on male alcoholics than female? Do television shows impact women’s desire to drink? Is there a stigma with moms drinking?

Topic: Letting things go is key to a longer, happier marriage
Negotiation is at the heart of how we as a culture like to deal with conflicts. From your work life to your home life, how often has the saying "let's talk about it" come up when things hit a snag? But this collective impulse runs counter to the findings of a new study. San Francisco State University psychologist Sarah Holley followed over 100 couples for 13 years to see how they approach conflict resolution and finds that for older married couples at least, avoiding talking about conflicts actually leads to happier marriages. Why is this the case? How do you deal with conflicts in your relationship? Does avoiding a persistently thorny issue work for you and your partner?
Guest: Sarah Holley, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Director of the Relationships, Emotion, and Health Lab at the San Francisco State University who conducted the research.
