So says a new study that examined the marriages of 1, people over the course of 20 years, the longest timeframe yet for observing how marital happiness — or its opposite — affects physical health.
The most detailed study on the connection between health and marital quality covered an eight-year time frame. Richard B. They developed a growth curve analysis using nationwide data collected between and by Penn State researchers for federally funded research of the causes of marital instability. Led by Alan Booth, the Penn State effort involved detailed surveys with more than 5, variables of more than 2, married people at six points in time during the two-decade span.
They separately compared the upsides of a healthy marriage and the downsides of a troubled one. If their health is good, their happiness is up.

One surprising finding was that individuals who began the study with troubled marriages reported improved health as time passed. Marital happiness was measured through an question scale that asked respondents how happy they were with various aspects of their relationship — such as whether their spouse understood them, did activities with them, agreed with them, and provided love and affection.
Marital problems were measured by 13 questions about how much the couple struggled with issues like jealousy, anger, financial irresponsibility and infidelity. Health status was measured by asking participants to rank their health as excellent, good, fair or poor.

The connection between increased marital happiness and improved health was particularly ificant for the younger group.
Decreases in marital problems over time were ificantly linked to improved health for the midlife group. One possible explanation: those people were resilient in the face of adversity.
