A new study published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior
says that people who get married and stay married may enjoy better health than the perpetually single. However, those who lose their spouse through divorce or become widowed fare worse than those who never marry. Jumping back into union does seem to lessen some of the health effects of divorce. Marital history was linked to overall health even when age, race, sex and education were factored in. The study does not, however, take into consideration the quality of marriages, which other studies suggest could be worse than being single.
In summation, getting married and living happily ever seems to be the secret to good health.
