Science Says A Happy Spouse Leads To A Longer Life

April 4, 2019

“Happy wife, happy life” is now a scientific fact! That’s according to a study that found having a happy spouse reduces your risk of death.

The study, published in the journal Psychological Science, examined over 4,000 married couples aged 50 and up over the course of 8 years. The couples that reported a higher level of spousal satisfaction had their risk of death reduced by 13%.

A happy relationship probably means that you’re happier overall, especially compared to people who are divorced...heck, studies even say that getting divorced can shorten your lifespan.

Sometimes all you really do need is love!
