Different aspects of our health are closely linked. A better feeling body generally results in a more stable mental state. One aspect of psychological or emotional stability/fulfillment will likely carry over into others.
Marriage is associated with psychological well-being, with healthy relationships reducing the amount of stress and depression in people’s lives. This makes perfect sense, as dependable spouses can rely on, and communicate with, one another. A happy marriage, with its benefits to mental health, is also associated with longevity and reduced likelihood of depression.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, however, failed marriages can have drastically negative effects on both the divorcing couple and their children. Studies show that children who experience parental divorce are more likely develop acute cardiovascular disease in adulthood. As children are affected by these relationship (and usually living arrangement) changes, the damage to their emotional health can also affect their physical health, both in the present and later in life.
The same is true for adult couples. The disintegration of a marriage can lead to depression, substance abuse, and a myriad of other emotionally unhealthy conditions, which of course can lead to physical and mental health problems as well. It’s all connected!
Problems in marriage can be stressful, but the consequences of divorce and uprooting your current life may have long-term effects on your physical and emotional health. It is in your interest (and your family’s) to solve the problems before it’s too late.
