A research study conducted from 2003 to 2008, which involved 3.5 million Americans, concluded that married people are less likely to suffer from any cardiovascular disorder, according to an online report published Monday, April 7.

The study compared married people to those who are single, divorced and widowed, and found that married individuals are at the lowest risk of developing cardiovascular ailments. In an interview, preventive cardiologist at NYU Langone Medical Center Dr. Jeffrey Berger said it is likely because married individuals are motivated by their spouses to live healthier.

A satisfying marriage can provide many benefits, including optimal health as shown by this study.
