Having a Happy Spouse Is Good for Your Health
A number of studies prove that mental health is closely connected to good physical health. Moreover, a recent study, published in Health Psychology, suggests that physical health can be connected to your happy spouse, too.
The researchers took data from a survey of 1,981 heterosexual couples from the USA aged over 50 whose happiness was assessed beginning from 1992 according to well-validated scales.
William J. Chopik, an assistant professor of psychology at Michigan State University and the lead author of the study says: “A happy spouse provides social support, and encourages you to eat a healthful diet and exercise, all of which can contribute to your good health.”
