Married People More Likely to Recover Well After Heart Surgery; A Latest Study Finds

Update Date: Nov 02, 2015 12:10 PM EST

Probably getting married isn't only the worst thing in the world as according to a latest study, your spouse can actually save your life after a dreadful heart surgery.

Better stay hitched as it can practically lower the risks of attaining a disability or dying after a heart surgery.

According to Huffington post,

"I think people recognize that social determinants of health are very important, but in terms of surgery very little has been done on how these related to functional outcomes," said lead author Dr. Mark Neuman, of the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

Individuals who are divorced, separated or widowed are more likely to indulge in excruciating experiences such as death and can attain disabilities too, a report suggests. They are 40% more prone towards such hard encounters in life as they are thought to be disconnected from their spouses. Other than that, they unwillingly require additional help in terms of daily activities which involves eating and other similar activities.

In a nutshell, when divorced or widowed individuals were compared to a married couple, the former were more likely to develop some sort of incapacities, and had a greater risk of developing functional disabilities during the first two years of cardiac surgery.

Other perks of being married include a healthy, stable life as married men tend to live longer and are supposedly happier in life. Single individuals were interviewed and asked questions such as how much help do they require when coming out of bed, making breakfast, and going to the washroom. The answers indicate that separated individuals asked for more help in terms of taking shower, going to bed, getting out of bed and other similar experiences of the daily life.
