Married women less likely to die from heart disease
About the author: 

Married women may have all sorts of problems with their husbands-but they are 28 per cent less likely than unmarried women to die from heart disease

Married women may have all sorts of problems with their husbands-but they are 28 per cent less likely than unmarried women to die from heart disease.

For whatever reason, being in a long-term relationship seems to make heart disease a less deadly condition for women, say Oxford University researchers.

Although women who are married or in a long-term relationship were just as likely as single women to develop heart disease, they were 28 per cent less likely to die from it.

Over a 30-year period, three in 100 women who were married or in a long-term relationship would die from heart disease compared to four in 100 women living alone, say the researchers, who explored the lifestyles and health of 730,000 women with an average age of 60.
