Marriage helps keep your heart healthy, says study

Marriage is not a bed of roses. It is all about sacrifices, compromises and understanding between two people. It is not everyone’s cup of tea. Some decide to go ahead with it, while some others choose not to.

Now a new study gives you another reason to work hard at your marriage. It says that marriage helps to prevent heart diseases! People who enter old age with their spouses are less likely to get heart attacks, strokes and other heart diseases.

Researchers conducted the study for over 20 years on people aged between 42 and 77 years of age. People from Europe, North America, the Middle East and Asia were taken as subjects for the study.

Divorcees and unmarried people had a 42% higher chance of getting cardiovascular diseases compared to those who are married. They also have a 55% higher chance of getting strokes. Hence, single people are likely to die earlier.

The study also showed that men were more prone to strokes over women.

This new study is purely based on observation and not scientific facts. Hence, researchers say that there is always room for a change in this theory.
