Happy marriage – live longer

“Reducing marital dissatisfaction may increase longevity,” say some American academics of the American Psychological Association.

Those US married couples who score their partnerships as very or pretty happy have about a 20% chance of living longer than those who says their marriages are not happy.

This study was based on interview responses from more than 19,000 married people up to age 90, who participated in the General Social Survey between 1978 and 2010.
