Women Suffer More From Bad Marriages

According to research done by US psychologists, women apparently suffer more physical health issues from bad marriages than men. Wives are said to be more prone to factors putting them at greater risk for heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, where men appear "immune" to these issues.

The subjects were asked a series of questions relating to a bad marriage, then they were submitted to a battery of tests to ascertain whether or not they showed signs of metabolic syndrome, a collection of symptoms which point to a raised risk for the above-mentioned health issues. Women were also more prone to Depression than men.

Accordingly, men appeared to suffer similar mental decline, but without the associated physical ailments. By this logic, men are less prone to physical damage from bad marriages.

Tell that to David Harris.

The study was conducted by a female psychologist.
