A study published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health found out that the risk of death is higher among men in stressful marriages, The Huffington Post revealed on May 14.

The study, which involved close to 10,000 Danish men and women aged between 36 and 52, tracked the participants’ health from 2000 to 2011. The 11-year data concluded that men are at higher risk of death when situated in a hostile marriage. The study further revealed that men’s chances of dying prematurely increase when their wives worry them or demand too much from them, although not when their family, friends, and neighbors do.
