    Actually this is not "well known" at all. There was a single study that barely rose to the level of "science" that only suggested this might be the case for people who hang out together ONLINE. It was based on facebook photos.

    Same goes for households.
    Correlation is not causation. It is common that what is assumed to be the cause is actually the effect. The fact is that people often marry others who are like them in many ways. And then they have kids who are like them, too.

    People are influenced by their environment.

    When Asians move to the West they get fatter, when Westerners move to Asia they are pressured to get thinner. Same with friends, households, etc. There have been many studies on it, plus we can just use our powers of observation.
