A Bad Marriage May Kill You

New research from the University College of London indicates a bad marriage might actually kill you! A study of more than 9,000 people revealed those with the worst marriages were 34 percent more likely to have heart attacks or other heart problems than those with good marriages.

“What we add here is that, ‘OK, being married is in general good, but be careful about the kind of person you have married.’ The quality of the relationship matters,” said lead author Roberto De Vogli.

To me, it’s kind of common sense that one would be “careful about the kind of person you have married.” You’re not going to marry someone you think will cause you stress, anxiety and sadness, right? I would certainly hope not!

This study is just further proof to me that the people should truly make sure that they person they marry is the right one. If you’re with someone that might actually increase your risk for heart disease, it’s probable to say they aren’t the right one. Talk about dying for the one you love – WOW!!!

By the way, Congrats to Kim who recently married someone she knows won't increase her risk for heart disease!!! Best of luck to you both!
