Marriage Is a Prescription for a Healthy Heart, Study Suggests

Being married appears to be a heart-healthy lifestyle, according to researchers.

Married men and women had lower rates of heart disease than those who were widowed, divorced or single, with fewer conditions like hardening of the arteries or blood clots, a study found. The research, which analyzed medical records of 3.5 million people nationwide evaluated for heart disease, was presented today in Washington at the American College of Cardiology meeting.
