Study shows that marriage reduces the risk of coronary complications

By Deana DeLisio,

Next time you hear someone’s spouse say, “Never get married,” in frustration. Tell them this-

For both genders, being married reduces the risk of having severe coronary complications. Not only that- being single increases the risks for both developing and dying from heart disease.

As stated in CBSNews, heart complications were between 58 and 66 percent more likely among unmarried men and between 60 and 65 percent higher risk for unmarried women. Death risks were also higher among the single.

There are a number of reasons as to why this may occur shared the USNews. For starters, married couples may be better off financially, have more support amongst friends and family, are more likely to be on a schedule and generally attain healthier lifestyles.

On the contrary, single people do not generally reap the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and may also be less likely to contact someone in case of an emergency.

Research was published on January 31 in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology.
