Happily Married, Happily Healthy

If you're looking to lower your blood pressure then you just may want to tie the knot. Just make sure, though, that he's the right one.

Overall, research has found that happily married people scored four points lower on the blood pressure readings than single adults. The study also found that blood pressure among married people — especially those in happy marriages — dipped more during sleep than in single people. Here's the kicker though. The study also found that unhappily married adults have higher blood pressure than both happily married and single adults.

So if you're walking down the aisle in the near future (or if you're already married), keep your marriage healthy by encouraging eating a healthy diet and having regular doctors visits for you and your spouse.

It's gotta be a lot less stressful to be married to a great person than be single and wondering if it's ever going to happen.

I'm actually in a Family and Marriage class right now and this was brought up. I do think it is important to consider the number of factors that go into someone's life to make a person happy - there are TONS! Also, I think there is another study that shows that married couples also tend to be healthier in addition to happier - does the happiness cause the healthiness or does the healthiness cause the happiness? Again, there are many factors and it's important to know that correlation does not equal causation!

I think it's because *most* people get married young and young people are generally less concerned about their health and diet. It's after marriage that things like meals take precedence over clubing and beer binges. A happily single person that isn't partying and eats well and exercises regularly is probably better off than happily or unhappily marrieds. Less stress!
