Study reveals marriage shortens women;s lives
New research has found that marriage knocks as much as 1.4 years off the average wife;s life span.
Here's a tip for single women-don't ger married, it shortens yourlife. New research has found that marriage knocks as much as 1.4 years off the average wife's life span. On the other hand, husbands live 1.7 years longer(contrary to what they think) after they say I'do. These are the conclusions of a study of a more than 1 lkh people across Europe, the Independent reported on Sunday.

The stress of playing super-wife/ super-mom -with women juggling dual roles as working women and home keepers -is thought to be one of the key components that is killing off female spouses earlier than singletons. Another factor that contributes to married women's reduced life span is their tendency to ape the behaviour of their spouse, according ot the research team of professor Stefan Felder of Madeburg University, Germany.

For instance,single women were more likely to be non-smokers than single women end up marrying smokers. This could lead them to take up cigarettes or be exposed to passive smoking -bad for health again. The paper reported that researchers also suggested the effect of regular sex could be detrimental for women's longetivity thanks to hormonal changes. For men, of course ,frequent sex aided longevity.
