Happy Marriage Increases Longevity

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, throughout the month of February, I will be featuring stories of happily married couples. I’ll also be including excerpts from Full Quiver’s new book entitled “Come My Beloved, Inspiring Stories of Catholic Courtship,” tentatively scheduled to be published this June.

In a recent article on LifeSiteNews , researchers have concluded that “stable, long term, exclusive relationships” lead to “more healthy lifestyles and better emotional and physical health,” and have a marked effect on longevity.

“The take home message is simple,” the authors conclude. “Exclusive and supportive relationships confer substantial mental and physical health benefits that grow over time.”
