Researchers from Brigham Young University have discovered that happily married people averaged 4 points lower on their blood pressure readings than single people do!
Researchers say marriage brings health benefits because partners encourage each other to eat healthy, exercise, and visit a doctor regularly. (I think my husband would call this nagging. I will have to ask him.)
They also reduce stress by supporting each other through hard times. However, unhappy couples have worse blood pressure readings than single people do.
Are you in a happy marriage? What's your blood pressure? Do you have any proof that goes along with this study?
