Wives become less stressed

Marriage has long been thought to be beneficial, but a new study suggests that widows suffer less stress and frailty than women whose husbands are still alive.

The findings are in contrast to previous research which showed marriage has a protective effect on health, lowering the risk of a heart attack, depression and increasing the chance of surviving from cancer.

While men suffer negative consequences when their wife dies – because they rely more heavily on their spouse – women appear to get healthier.
