Study Finds Divorced Women Are More Likely To Suffer from Heart Ailments

Researchers claimed to have found in their study that women who divorce are 60% more likely to develop heart disease later in life than those who remain in a married// relationship.

The researchers had explained that even those who probably do find new happiness and remarry would still be likely to suffer ill health as a direct result of their previous failed relationship. They further mentioned that in comparison men are seemingly, unaffected physically by the whole process of divorce, with loss in marriage having a minor effect on their chances of developing any heart problems.

The researchers were of the opinion that the emotional stress of a marriage breakdown, along with the subsequent social and economic changes, like moving their home and a probable reduction in income, might trigger physical and mental problems in women, which they state could put them at an increased risk of suffering from a cardiovascular condition.

The researchers further added that in many cases women were also happier with themselves if they were in a family environment, whereas job and career prospects are more important to the self-satisfaction of a man. A spokesman for the University of Texas, who carried out the research said, “Our results reveal that women with a marital loss have a higher risk of disease in late-midlife compared to continuously married women, whereas marital loss is not associated with men's risk.” They further added that “Women tend to value themselves more in terms of family relationships ...whereas men value themselves primarily in terms of their occupation.”

It was explained that the scientists had interviewed around 10,000 middle-aged men and women every two years for over a decade towards their study of a wider health and lifestyle survey. The researchers explained that they found that over 10 years more than a 10th of the subjects studied had developed cardiovascular conditions.

Publishing their fi ndings, in the Journal of Marriage and the Family, the researchers showed that 11.6% of divorced women and 10.7% of remarried women had heart disease, as compared to 8.7% of those women who had remained married. They also found that the risk of developing cardiovascular problems also increased with age, they showed that at 51yrs, 10.9% of the divorcees and 9.8% of those who had remarried showed affects of a heart disease, as compared to around 7.3% of those who remained married. And around 9 years later by around the of 60, 33% of the divorced women, and 31% of remarried women had cardiovascular problems, as compared to just 22% of those who were still happily married.

It has been reported that the divorce rates have quadrupled in Britain since the 70’s with around 1 in 4 marriages breaking down now a days. Figures from the Office for National Statistics has showed that about half the marriages of people in their 20’s end in divorce and the highest rate was among 25 to 39-year-olds.
