Marriage is Good for Your Heart

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer in America, and marriage offers protection against it, recent findings confirmed.

Among a study’s key findings, presented at the latest scientific sessions of the American College of Cardiology, were:

  • Married people had a 5 percent lower risk of having any cardiovascular disease than single people.
  • Widowed people were 3 percent more likely, and divorce people 5 percent more likely, to suffer from any kind of cardiovascular disease.
  • Married people under 50 had a 12 percent lower risk of heart-related disease than single people their age.
  • Older Couples, between the ages of 51 and 60, had 7 percent reduced risk, while those above 60 had about 4 percent lower risk of disease.
