Talk about marriage being good for the heart ... literally. A new study found marriage can ease your recovery after heart surgery.
The study was published Wednesday in the journal JAMA Surgery. It claims patients who were married did significantly better than those who were divorced, widowed or separated — but not better than those who had never been married.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania used data from a University of Michigan study of more than 1,500 adults over the age of 50 who had undergone heart surgery.
