Is Marriage Good For Your Heart?

Posted: Updated:

Tying the knot may help strengthen your heart! A study of more than 3 and a half million people found married people have lower rates of heart problems than those who are single, divorced or widowed.

The researchers at N-Y-U Langone Medical Center found the relationship between marriage and lower odds of vascular diseases is especially strong for people under age 50.

Experts say this isn't a reason to get married.... But doctors who have unmarried patients may want to pay attention to other heart risk factors.
