Washington: A new study from the University of Rochester has found that happily wedded people who undergo coronary bypass surgery are more than three times as likely to be alive 15 years later as their unmarried counterparts. “There is something in a good relationship that helps people stay on track,” stated Kathleen King professor emerita from the School of Nursing at the University of Rochester and lead author on the study.Co-author Harry Reis, professor of psychology at the University of Rochester added, “in fact, the effect of marital satisfaction is “every bit as important to survival after bypass surgery as more traditional risk factors like tobacco use, obesity, and high blood pressure.”But the marriage advantage plays out differently for men and women.For men, marriage in general is linked to higher survival rates and the more satisfying the marriage, the higher the rate of survival.
