    I can't access the full text so can't ascertain the possibility of confounding factors or reverse causation, e.g. people with difficulty forming/sustaining good marriages also being prone to other risk factors for myocardial infarct, or existing stress (due to other factors) contributing to the breakdown of marriages, etc.

    But I am open to the possibility that emotional stress can increase the risk for some illnesses.

    In some cases divorce can actually make you live longer.

    It all depends on the man, the woman, and the quality of the relationship. If you share the same values, know how to communicate with and listen to each other, and how to own your own buttons when they get pushed, that is a good place to start having a healthy relationship.

    Yup!

    But you have to wonder about the validity of a study like this as there are so many factors that make up a relationship as well as many circumstances and reasons for divorce.
