The discovery of cracks marriage and heart disease was found in his wife proved. This is most likely because women tend to be more deeply felt negative emotions than men.
The study also recommends marriage counseling should be done on the old couple and also those who are just starting married life. "Marriage counseling focuses largely on young couples. Our study shows that the quality of marriage also takes a couple of older age. Even for couples married 40 or 50 years , "says sociologist from Michigan State University Hui Lui.

In his latest study, Lui and his team analyzed data from about 1,200 five-year-old married couple 57 to 85 from the beginning of the study. All study participants questioned the quality of marriage and studied the level of heart attacks, strokes and blood pressure.
