Jealousy in a romantic relationship can lead to alcohol problems

first_imgShare People who depend on their relationship to make them feel good about themselves are more likely to drown their sorrows if they believe their partner is cheating, suggests new research. The study, published in Addictive Behaviors, links romantic jealousy, relationship-dependent self-esteem and alcohol problems for the first time.The authors of the study, from the University of Houston, US, say understanding the link between these three factors could help identify people at risk of alcoholism more quickly.Excessive alcohol use is the third leading cause of preventable death in the US, accounting for 1 in 10 deaths among working-age adults – around 88,000 deaths per year in the US, and 2.5 million deaths per year globally. Predicting alcohol problems means they can be prevented, and research has shown that using alcohol to cope with negative emotions is one of the strongest predictors. Share on Facebook Pinterest LinkedIncenter_img Share on Twitter “We all experience feelings of jealousy to some degree; many people are in relationships that are less than ideal, and use alcohol for different reasons,” said Dr. Angelo DiBello, lead author of the study. “Romantic jealousy is a shared human experience, but very little work has looked at how it is related to alcohol use, misuse and associated problems. This research helps to highlight the associations between these factors and show how our emotions, thoughts, and behaviors are related in potentially harmful ways.”Previous research has focused on the link between jealousy and alcohol use, and the link between jealousy and the quality of a relationship. This is the first study to look at three factors together – relationship-dependent self-esteem, jealousy and drinking – and provides an insight into how these factors affect the risk of alcohol problems.For the new study, the researchers investigated how different types of jealousy affect the link between depending on a romantic relationship for self-esteem and having alcohol-related problems. 277 people (87% female) at a large southern university answered questions about how dependent their self-esteem is on their romantic relationship, the satisfaction, commitment and closeness in their relationship, their jealousy and their alcohol use.The results reveal that people whose self-esteem relies on their relationship turn to alcohol to cope because of jealousy. These findings were especially true for people who are less satisfied, less committed, and report feeling more disconnected from their partners.When a person’s self-worth is tied to their romantic relationship, the effect of negative events or emotions is magnified. The study shows that when this happens, believing their partner is cheating can lead people to use alcohol to cope.“Given how common experiencing jealousy and being in romantic relationships are, this work helps to explain difference associations that may negatively impact an individual’s drinking,” said Dr. DiBello.“I think it is important to understand the role romantic jealousy plays in the larger context of problem behaviors. Ultimately, I hope to use findings like these to support the development of prevention and intervention efforts among individuals who may struggle with alcohol, self-esteem and relationship issues,” added Dr. DiBello.

A Walk Down Memory Lane With Ron Rothman

first_img Share “My grandfather, David Rothman, started the Rothman’s Department Store in 1918,” said Ron Rothman, who inherited the business and has kept the 100-year-old Southold legacy operational. “When my grandfather started the store, it was a department store and he sold dry goods, furniture, guitars, electrical appliances, and was even one of the earliest independent General Electric dealers,” he said.“In its day, it was truly one-stop shopping. But not much has stayed the same over the last 90 years because retail has changed so drastically. We can’t compete against Amazon,” the third generation Rothman explained. “We survive by evolving and being diverse, and offer an experience that you’ll not find anywhere else. We still manage to have that ‘throwback’ feel to an era before the internet and niche type stores came about. It’s a little like a museum experience when you walk in.”According to Ron Rothman, his great frandfather, Chaim (Charles) Rothman was from Warsaw, Poland, and his great grandmother, Baracha (Betty) Glick Rothman was from Miskolcz, Hungary. They immigrated to the United States and lived on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. David was one of five children and was born in 1896 in New York City. The family later moved to Bayonne, NJ.Times were tough and the family was very poor. David quit school after completing the eighth grade to work and help support the family. He landed a job on the Jersey Central Railroad, eventually being promoted to a stationmaster. It was during this time that David Rothman met Ruth Samuel. She would ride the train to her own job and they would wave to each other every day. They were married in 1918. Having already spent summers at Ruth’s aunt’s home in Southold, they decided that they would rather raise a family in Southold than Bayonne. He gave up his job with the railroad and opened Rothman’s in the center of town on Main Road.The store is known for having been frequently visited by Albert Einstein when he summered in Southold in 1939. The famous sandal story which prompted the friendship that developed between David Rothman and Albert Einstein was originally documented in a publication compiled by Joan Rothman Brill, David Rothman’s daughter and later by his grandsons, Ron and Chuck Rothman. David Rothman was a violinist, enjoyed classical music, was an amateur astronomer and supporter of local artists and musicians. Einstein, also a violinist who enjoyed classical music, would invite the department store owner to come to his summer home to play duets together. They would also take long walks together, with Einstein explaining his scientific theories to a man whose thirst for knowledge provided an exceptional audience for the renowned scientist.While David Rothman was enjoying his new friendship with Einstein, his son Robert, Ron Rothman’s father, was 11 years old. “As an 11-year-old my father said he didn’t think much about the two old guys. He was feeling more like he was being inconvenienced because he had to entertain Einstein’s grandson, Bernhard (nicknamed Hadi) who was eight years old. When you’re 11 and you have an eight-year-old that is tagging along everywhere and you have to entertain him, you’re not too happy,” Ron Rothman recalls his father saying. “My father said it just seemed like all they ever did was ride around in the car and he was stuck in the back seat with Hadi while my grandfather and Einstein were in the front seat talking and driving.”According to Ron Rothman, “Einstein remembered the summer of 1939 on the North Fork as one of the best in his life and credited David Rothman for it.” Working side by side with his father, Ron had the opportunity to hear his father’s recollections of the summer of 1939 and how he took Einstein’s grandson on his boat to entertain him and how many times Albert Einstein and some of his family members had to be rescued when he would go out sailing with his boat, Tineff, which, when translated to English, meant “junk.”“Einstein,” he said, “was a terrible sailor and his father was called to rescue him on numerous occasions.”“I’ve always been in the store and worked here in the early 1980s with my father,” Ron said. “I sort of fell into it once my father had run his course with it. I’ve worked it for more than 35 years,” he added. In addition to operating Rothman’s, Ron is a musician, artist, and author. He has published essays in the paperback, My Grandfather and Albert Einstein and is the author of Harmony, The People’s Guitar, which explores the company Harmony, when it was one of the largest manufacturers of stringed instruments.“I’ve been involved in various aspects of the music scene out here on the North Fork for more than 30 years. I’ve played with several local bands including Southold Slim, and have promoted shows and have performed in musical theatre,” he said. Ron’s background has helped him transition the store.“While we are still a department store, and still offer a whole variety of merchandise, guitars have become a main line of our business. They’ve always been a part of it. I’d had guitars as a side line for many years but with the internet and stores like Ace Hardware, mom-and-pop stores all over the country have been hurt, but I used these changes as an opportunity to make Rothman’s Department Store into the type of business it is today.” With the addition of Rothman’s Guitars and Art Gallery and his website and Facebook presence, the store has made the transitions Ron deemed necessary for the family business to continue.A lifelong resident of Southold, Rothman believes that the store and the Rothman/Einstein friendship will always hold a place in history as it was the backdrop for one of the most important events that influenced World War II. “On August 2, 1939, scientist Leo Szilard visited Einstein in Nassau Point to request that Einstein write a letter to President Roosevelt explaining how it is possible to manufacture an atomic bomb and warning that Germany was already attempting to build one. The rest is history,” Rothman concluded. “Einstein held himself personally responsible and often discussed his feelings of guilt and sadness at what had occurred. His theories had made the monster bomb possible.”Ron Rothman is married and has a son, Gregory who lives in Ithaca, New York and a daughter, Rebecca who resides in Key West. His wife, Madelyn, is a special education teacher in the Cutchogue School District.valerie@indyeastend.comlast_img read more

Sexism is no joke

first_imgHoward Shelley (see letter) says sharia law has a role to play in dispute resolution. Nothing in law currently prevents anyone submitting to religious dispute resolution if they so choose. As he says, as long as it does not replace English law it can be used. The Jews have the Beth Din, and my own marriage was annulled religiously according to the auspices of the Roman Catholic church. However, where individuals are pressured to accept religious courts as sole arbiter with no access either practically or legally to the civil courts, then the sexism inherent in all the paternalist religions is given free rein. Mr Shelley might joke about adulteresses being stoned in the street, but I was in Iran in January on business, a wonderful country in many ways but sexist to the core, and a country where, as we know from this week’s press, his quip reflects a practical reality.
