    Marriage can be good for the heart

    You may have heard that it is good for you to settle down and get married. Getting married can be scary enough, especially with all of life’s stresses. But in all actuality a good marriage can do more for you than just keep a happy home. Recent studies have shown that a happy and healthy marriage can keep a healthy heart. In the latest recent study of 3.5 million older adults that were screened for cardiovascular dysfunctions, those who were married had better hearts and better blood vessel flow than that’s of those who were single, divorced or widowed. Many of the results were linked to less stressful lives. In healthy marriages there is usually less stressful events that occur than in those who are single, widowed or divorced. This union of two people trying to make things work, makes the heart and blood vessels work better and stronger.
    However extreme stress has a major opposite effect on a heart. Too much stress causes all organs to be in jeopardy of deterioration or failure. In extremes cases of stress, or broken heart syndrome, a condition that can arise that can cause death to its victim by a stress-induced cardiomyopathy.
    Now that you know marriage can benefit your health and not just your taxes, don’t be afraid to take the plunge with that special someone. Who know knows all the benefits the two of you can have in store, but one is probably for sure, a healthy heart.
