Being married for life may have some benefits for the brain, according to a recent
review involving 850,000 people from various countries. The new research suggests that
lifelong marriage may lower the risk of cognitive decline. The recent analysis found
that lifelong singles have a 42% higher risk of developing dementia when compared
to married people. These findings remained even after adjusting for physical health.
Previous studies have associated marriage with lower risk of heart attack and strokes
and with longevity. The health benefits of wedded bliss may be found in the generally
healthier lifestyle and more social interaction.
