High Blood Pressure And Marriage

Do you remember that Sex and the City episode where Samantha’s doctor tells her she might have developed breast cancer because of her “lifestyle choices” (being single and childless). Well, now there’s a study that says happily married adults have lower blood pressure than single people. Don’t take this as an edict to get married, though, because the unhappily married had even worse blood pressure than singles. And if you’re blood pressure’s that much of a problem, have your doc prescribe you something. [Reuters]
