Marriage tied to lower risk of fatal heart attacks and strokes

People who are married may be less likely to develop cardiovascular disease or die from a heart attack or stroke than individuals who aren't, a research review suggests.

Researchers examined data from 34 previous studies involving more than two million people. Overall, they found that compared to married people, adults who were divorced, widowed or never married were 42 percent more likely to develop cardiovascular disease and 16 percent more likely to develop coronary artery disease.  Unmarried people were also 43 percent more likely to die from heart disease and 55 percent more likely to die from strokes, researchers report in the journal Heart.
