WASHINGTON: Marital bliss makes a woman healthy, finds a new study. The research, published in the current issue of Health Psychology, a journal of the American Psychological Association (APA), has revealed that women who are in satisfying marriages have a health advantage over those who are single or tied down in unsatisfying relationship.

For the study, the researchers involved 493 middle-aged women (42-50) over a 13-year period.

The findings revealed that women in good marriages were less likely to develop risk factors that lead to cardiovascular diseases compared with other middle-aged women. The researchers said that the results indicate that women in marriages characterized by high levels of satisfaction showed a health advantage when compared with participants in marriages characterized by low levels of satisfaction and with unmarried participants (single, widowed or divorced).

This included lower levels of biological and lifestyle cardiovascular risk factors - such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels and body mass index - and lower levels of psychosocial cardiovascular risk factors - such as depression, anxiety and anger.

Those women in highly satisfying marriages also showed this same health advantage when compared with women in moderately satisfying marriages, but to a lesser extent. However, research shows poor marital quality may erase these health advantages, say the authors.

Poor marital quality is also linked with more depression, hostility and anger, all risk factors for coronary heart disease. Thus, marital status and quality could influence metabolic risk factors and acute stress responses, which in turn predict cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, according to the study.
