  1. Marriage Linked to Healthier Hearts

    Married people are less likely than divorced, widowed or single people to suffer from any type of heart problem, according to a study of 3.5 million Americans. The findings hold true for either gender, any age and despite other heart disease risk factors. Why the connection?
