Marriage & Health (Gender Differences, Pt. 2)

According to a new UCLA study, happily married women rebound better from everyday stress than do women who are less happy in their marriages. "Past research has found that men appear to get a health and longevity boost from marriage, while for women, being married is only beneficial insofar as the marriage is high-quality," Rena Repetti, a psychology professor and one of the study’s authors, says in the press release. The findings appear in the January issue of the journal Health Psychology. —Heather Wax
