Divorce affects women mentally and physically

According to a recent study in the U.S, divorce affects a woman both mentally and physically.//

Fred Lorenz, who co-authored the report at Iowa State University’s Institute for Social and Behavioural Research, said: “What we found was that the act of getting a divorce produced no immediate effects on (physical) health, but it did have effects on mental health. “Ten years later, those effects on mental health led to effects in physical health.”

This 10-year study was conducted on around 416 women in rural Iowa. Of them, 102 women were recently divorced who were interviewed 4 times during the period 1990-2001.

The results revealed that psychological distress was 7% higher in divorced women than the married ones during the period 1991-1994.

The incidence of physical illness was 37% higher in divorced women than the married ones after a decade. According to Lorenz, reasons like social isolation and comparatively poor job opportunities after divorce could be responsible for the illness reported a decade later.
