A loving marriage

A loving and stable marriage doesn’t just provide security and emotional comfort, it may keep you alive for longer as well. Studies have shown that cancer patients have a greater chance of survival if they are married. And it’s not the economic safety net of being married which offers the greatest benefit, but the emotional and social support a spouse provides. Regardless of their socioeconomic, racial or ethnic background, unmarried men and women face a 15 to 22 percent higher mortality risk from cancer than their married counterparts.
