Happy Marriages Mean Good Health

By December 13, 2012

Follow me on:

I wish for all of you a happy and healthy new year. Since you're married, you have a better chance of that happening apparently. I know I've shared research with you before that proved married people tend to be healthier and are better able to combat disease than their single counterparts. But I just came across yet another article pointing this out, and I wanted to share. In the December 2012/January 2013 issue of Bergen Health & Life magazine, Francesca Moisin writes, "Be Wed, Be Well: Surprising Health Benefits Come with Being (Happily) Married." After revealing some of the results of the many studies conducted to prove this, she writes about the five areas - nutrition, stress, habits, medical coaching, and sex - in which marriage can have a positive effect and why. I suggest you read it, too. The next time hubby leaves the seat up on the toilet and you have fallen in yet again, you might think twice about fuming. After all, as long as you're mostly happy with him, he's most likely boosting your immunity and giving you a better shot at living longer. How can you stay mad with someone who does all that for you, right?

A couple also takes better care of themselves for their spouse and
they also watch out for each other so two most often is better than one
