Study says divorce damages health at an earlier age
A study has just been published in the journal, Social Science & Medicine, that shows a relationship between the age of someone getting divorced and poor health complications.
There were 1,282 participants in the study whose lives were examined for 15 years by sociologists at Michigan State University. Different aspects of their lives were assessed including; age when divorce occurs, health complications and age, and health relating to marriage success. The results determined that the younger someone goes through a divorce, the more likely they are to experience health problems.
The researchers involved in the study think that more resources need to be available to younger individuals in order for them to cope with the terms of divorce. They also suggest that the reason why people can deal with divorce better at an older age is due to their developed managing skills.
