Divorces Are Bad For Your Health

Heartbreak is real. Divorces can cause heart attacks and being alone can also cause stress on the heart.

A new study reveals divorces increases the risk of dying from cardiac issues. Research from nearly 1 million people over the course of 13 years claims married people who suffer from a heart attack have a better survival rate than divorced people. Single people who were never married also had a better survival rate.

Divorced people suffered the most fatalities after a heart attack with death rates 16% higher than married people. The results make sense because having a partner encourages people to take care of themselves and make better choices with their health.

So it seems staying unhappy in a marriage may be more of an advantage than going through a divorce.
