Todays Wall Street Journal reported a new study to be released at the upcoming Coalition for Marriage Conference showing that being divorced for long periods of time is related to increased liklihood of heart or lung disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke and also to loss of mobility later in life. Also noteworthy: Don’t mistake re-marriage for a solution to the health problems of divorce. Researchers found that those in "low quality" remarriages are no better off health wise than those who remain divorced. In other words, take care with your choice of a new marriage partner.
