A Healthy Marriage Equals a Healthy Life! Part 1

Marriage can bring so much joy and love into your life – but only if you work hard to make it a happy and healthy union. A good marriage provides immense physical, mental and emotional benefits that positively impact your overall health and wellbeing. Here are a few reasons why a healthy marriage leads to a healthy life:

Improved Physical Health

Research shows that married people live longer, have lower rates of depression and substance abuse, and even recover from illnesses faster. Some reasons for these benefits include:

  • Regular support from a spouse leads to less stress which reduces blood pressure, cholesterol and promotes better sleep. All of these factors help lower the risk of heart disease, the leading cause of death.
  • Married people tend to adopt healthier behaviors like eating nutritious meals, exercising regularly and going for routine medical checkups. A spouse can provide encouragement, company and accountability.
  • Married individuals are more likely to receive early diagnoses for conditions like high blood pressure or cancer because they have someone monitoring and prompting them to see a doctor. Early detection increases the chances of successful treatment.
  • For women in particular, marriage appears to boost the immune system and longevity. Wives live an average of 5 years longer than unmarried women. The social support and intimate relationships in marriage seem to provide unique health benefits for females.

Greater Mental Wellbeing

Social isolation is a major risk factor for depression, anxiety and cognitive decline. Marriage serves as a buffer against loneliness by giving you a built-in companion and source of emotional support. A happy union can:

  • Reduce stress and anxiety through intimate conversations, physical touch and shared activities that take your mind off worries.
  • Foster feelings of security, belonging and purpose which boost self-esteem and optimism – critical components of happiness and mental health.
  • Provide empathy, encouragement and accountability that helps you get through difficult times and cope with challenges in a resilient manner.
  • Keep you mentally stimulated through daily interactions and conversations that exercise your brain and may even delay cognitive decline in older age.

Stronger Financial Stability

Two incomes and shared living expenses tend to make married couples more financially secure than singles. This stability reduces stress related to money issues which in turn promotes better health. Benefits include:

  • Lower housing costs from sharing a mortgage or rent which frees up funds for health-promoting activities like nutritious food, gym memberships and medical expenses.
  • Spousal support during job losses, illnesses or other setbacks that threaten financial security. Partners can step in to provide temporary income, handle bills and make contingency plans.
  • Shared retirement savings and assets that provide a cushion in older age. Married seniors are less likely to live in poverty and have greater access to healthcare.
  • Inheritance for surviving spouses which boosts financial security after the loss of a partner. Married individuals also have legal rights to each other’s assets, pensions andSocial Security benefits.

Stronger Social Connections

Your spouse expands your social circle by introducing you to their friends and relatives. Increased social interaction through:

  • Shared friends and family members who provide a support network, advice and companionship. A wide network helps prevent isolation and loneliness.
  • Joint hobbies, activities and events that get you out of the house meeting new people and forming connections.These social bonds improve wellbeing by satisfying the fundamental human need for belonging.
  • Shared social responsibilities like volunteering, attending gatherings and hosting parties that improve community involvement – an important aspect of life satisfaction and happiness.

In summary, a successful marriage offers numerous health benefits including lower risk of disease, greater longevity, less stress and depression, more financial security, increased happiness and life satisfaction. Nurturing a happy, intimate relationship with your spouse through communication, affection, shared interests and commitment is truly “life-promoting.” So strive to build and maintain a healthy marriage – your future self will thank you!
