With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this new study released is perfectly appropriate. The University of Arizona has discovered an interesting correlation between marriage and health.
“Earlier studies on marriage and divorce have shown that marriage is usually associated with a longer lifespan and fewer health problems, while divorce is associated with higher mortality,” said the study’s lead author, Dr. Randa Kutob, an associate professor of family and community medicine and director of the UA College of Medicine’s Office of Continuing Medical Education.
“The interesting thing we found in our study is that with divorce in postmenopausal women, it’s not all negative, at least not in the short term,” she said. (Medicalnews.net)
