Divorce is Bad for your Health

As reported today (tomorrow) by the Victoria Herald Sun, divorce has a huge impact on your health, even if you remarry.

According to a study by Chicago University soon to be published in theJournal of Health and Social Behavior, divorced or widowed people have 20% more chronic health conditions like heart disease, cancer and diabetes than married people, and also have more mobility problems such as walking and climbing stairs.

Divorcees who don’t remarry suffer the greatest ill-health effects due to a drop in income and increased stress resulting from child care and custody issues.

I’ll watch for the published study and post a link if it becomes publicly accessible.
