Bad marriage is even more unhealthy, than tobacco and alcohol. There are facts

Whether so marriage has a protective effect?

for certain came across to you articles that marriage is useful to health and that married people on average live longer.

But a new research corrects the previous conclusions a little. In bad marriage life is reduced, The World Economic Forum writes. And husbands suffer more, than wives. Researchers of the American universities of the State of Nevada and Michigan watched

373 heterosexual couples within the first 16 years of their marriage to find out whether lead disagreement on such subjects as education of children, money, relatives and a hobby, to negative consequences for health.

Then researchers have compared health of wives and husbands who reported about bigger number of conflict subjects with those who have reported about smaller.

Results have shown that the conflict between spouses has had an adverse effect on health of both husbands, and wives, but men have suffered more.

to remove the sequence, have asked spouses questions of their health, including of whether their health has influenced their work, whether there were problems with a dream, whether their nervousness and feeling of alarm disturbed, and whether they suffered from headaches. Health was estimated on a five-point scale, and higher point meant better health.

of Couple with the low level of the conflict have received on average 4.07 points at the beginning of marriage, but couples with the high level of the conflict were unhealthy from the very beginning, with an average value of <3,>
the Previous researches generally looked for advantages to health. It has appeared, people with the high blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes live better if they have a spouse. Also there were high survival indicators after heart attacks.

Are available also certificates that married visit the doctor more often, than lonely with the same symptoms, and it exerts beneficial influence on survival indicators. Of course, the statistics not for 100 percent is positive: marriage is also connected with the increased risk of increase in weight.

How exactly harms bad marriage?

Just as good marriage can be salutary in respect of health, bad can exert negative impact in several ways.

the Conflict in the relations can cause various inflammations, provoke change of appetite and the increased release of hormones of a stress. And all this can influence health - beginning from warm function and finishing with immune system. "Experience of conflict situations in the relations is very unhealthy, is equal as smoking and alcohol intake", - Rosi Scirut who has presented results of a research at a conference to Colorado says. Especially, if spouses are hostile to each other or if they argue on the same subject again and again". Some researches comparing consequences of "happy" marriages with "unfortunate" have shown that people in the unsatisfactory union have the increased risk of heart attack or stroke in comparison with the people living in marriage pleasure.
