Divorcing your partner might cost you your lifespan

by Deeksha Kumar, Thursday, May 31, 2018

Marriage is a beautiful bond between two souls. It is one of the purest forms of a relationship which can help you grow into a better version of yourself. A successful marriage can lead to your escalation but an unsuccessful one might lead to your downfall. Sometimes unsuccessful marriages result in divorce when both the partners feel that things can’t be on the track anymore.

‘Decreased physical activities, increased smoking; two important factors leading to death’

Divorced people tend to indulge themselves more in alcohol and smoking as their level of life satisfaction is comparatively lower. As compared to the married couples, the physical activities of divorced people get lowered down too resulting in various health-related issues.

According to the data based on the findings by English Longitudinal Study of Aging of adults over age 50 living in Great Britain, out of 5786 participants, 926 people were divorced, separated or had not remarried. The rest of the people compromised in their married life. The participants were then asked about their exercise frequency, smoking frequency, and life satisfaction. The levels of inflammation and lung function of the participants were also examined.

The researchers further found from this study that the death rates of the divorced people were 46% higher than that of the married ones. Also, the divorced women had further lower life satisfaction than married participants.

One possible reason for increased dependency on smoking after divorce is that the people don’t have spouses anymore to look after their health and guide them to live a healthier life. As a coin has two sides, both positive and negative; similarly divorce not always has a negative effect on our health, it can have a positive effect too if we are stuck in an unhealthy relationship. In the end, it’s on you how you take it. Stay tuned for more Relationship updates.Follow our Bollywood Magazine For Latest Bollywood News and Gossips.
