Marriage can indeed change a person. But not many people know that the changes experienced by a person not only in terms of behavior and psychology, but also physically. After the previous marriage was associated with a reduced risk of cancer and heart disease, researchers now also find other health benefits of getting married.
Recent studies show that married men can make the bones become stronger. After comparing the bones of men who are married to men who are still single, researchers found that men who are married have stronger bones.
Men who have a stable marriage and was never known divorce to have stronger bones than men who are single. But the age factor also determines bone strength. This applies only if the man married after the age of 25 years. Men who marry before age 25 years had a more brittle bones, as reported by the Daily Mail (23/01).
Unfortunately, a study published in the journal Osteoporosis International have not found the same thing applies to women who are married and who are still single. At random, the study found that women who have a partner who supports them to have stronger bones than women who did not have the support from a partner.
This is the first study that links between marriage with bone strength. During this time unknown to the influence of social factors such as weddings on bone health. This makes marriage not only beneficial psychologically but also physically.
Previous research also showed that people who had never married, going through divorce, widowed, or separated have unhealthy bone and fragile. This result is obtained through data from the Midlife in the United States to observe participants aged 25 to 75 years in 1995-1998, and 2004-2005.
