Here is another reason to find the right partner as soon as possible. A study has found that being married reduces heart attack and stroke risk.
According to a team of researchers at the Keele University in the UK, single people are more susceptible to having cardiovascular diseases, even fatal ones such as heart attack or stroke – compared to married people.
However, the researchers believe the finding may be linked to various factors, like additional emotional and social support from a spouse. The researchers analysed 30 studies involving more than two million people.
The results showed that single person or those who had been divorced or widowed had a 42-percent higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease and a 16-percent higher risk of developing a coronary artery heart disease.
It was also found that single individual had a greater risk of dying from heart disease (42 percent) and stroke (55 percent).
Dr. Mamas Mamas, lead author of the study said:
“For example, it is well known that patients are more likely to take important medications after an event such as a heart attack or a stroke of they are married, perhaps because of spousal pressure.”
“Similarity, they are more likely to take part in rehabilitation which improves outcomes after strokes or heart attacks.”
Additionally, married people have someone to take care if something goes wrong.
So, there you have it. What are you waiting for? Go out and find the best partner for yourself.
