Introduction. Alcohol abuse is considered a public health problem, socially widespread, and normalized. It can contribute to more than 60 diseases and social problems, family violence, relationship, and financial problems, impulsive behavior, car accidents, and a lower work productivity. Objective.

A quantitative explanatory research was conducted. Method.

Results. We found that sensation seeking, and partner functionality have the highest predictive value in alcohol consumption. An important contribution of this study is the finding that the couple's functionality of the couple's functionality works as a protective factor of alcohol consumption even when one of the two partners in the relationship presents high sensation seeking.
