Outweighing wealth, social class and IQ
By Susannah Jones
(HealthDay News) -- How happy a person is in a relationship has a powerful influence on the person's health, a new Harvard University study finds.
In fact, the link between a person's happiness in a relationship impacts health more than wealth, social class, IQ, genes and cholesterol levels, according to researchers at the school's Study for Adult Development.
The study found a satisfying relationship helps the person:
- Protect against disappointment.
- Delay mental and physical decline.
- Cultivate new relationships.
- Reconnect with loved ones.
