Is Marriage Good for the Heart?

According to a research study from the University of Rochester, this may very well be the case. Published online August 22 in Health Psychology, a publication of the American Psychological Association, the study shows that the long term survival rates of patients that receive coronary surgery increases when the patient is in a supportive, happy marriage. Fifteen years after surgery, 28% of women in unhappy marriages and 27% of unmarried women are long term survivors. But when you compare that to the 83% survival rate of happily married women, the contrast is stark.

Read this article at The University of Rochester to learn more about the study and find out how happily married and unmarried men fare 15 years after coronary surgery.

Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
