Marriage good for health


According to a study, married people are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and substance abuse, clinical psychologist Kate Scott of New Zealand's University of Otago said on Tuesday. -- ST PHOTO: LIM WUI LIANG

WELLINGTON - DESPITE the barbs of comedians and the spectacular bust-ups documented in the gossip magazines, marriage really is good for you, international research has found.

A study of nearly 34,500 people in 15 countries found married people are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and substance abuse, clinical psychologist Kate Scott of New Zealand's University of Otago said on Tuesday.

'What our study points to is that the marital relationship offers a lot of mental health benefits for both men and women, and that the distress and disruption associated with ending marriage can make people vulnerable to developing mental disorders,' Dr Scott said.

Being separated, divorced, or widowed is associated with increased risk of mental health disorders in both men and women, particularly with depression in men and drugs and alcohol abuse in women.

'One of the more important findings is that in recent years it has been asserted that marriage is better for men than for women in terms of mental health. This study does not agree with that position,' Dr Scott said.

'We found that compared to never getting married, getting married is good for both men and women in terms of most mental health disorders.' -- AFP

Re: Marriage good for health

I read this somewhere else before...I think married people are more stable than unmarried ones for various reasons...singles are more prone to depression and anxiety..of course if your married partner is an ass..you might suffer the same problem too

Re: Marriage good for health

Must be another propaganda from the state times by govt to encourage peoples to get marry, wha lau, so desperate. To me Marriage is healthy on in the initial few years, after that, it depends, some become more unhealthy and some already passed away.

Is that a proposal..

Back to the topic..Personally for me, marriage sure do lead to good health provided you're leading one. an understanding and listening wife, help you to forget your stress even though she can help much.

With children around, it make much more meaningful. with their innocent laughter and once a while fighting among sibling sometime so amusing as it do remind you of your childhood life. Seeing their face (wife and children) after a bad day at work is a very much stress less compare than being a couch potato. Personally for me, I love married life.
