Scientists came to the conclusion that being a widow can be useful for health, because these women suffer less from stress in old age than their married peers.
It is reported just4fun.su.
Doctor of psychology Katherine Trevisan from the University of Padua says that the presence of the wife is of great benefit to elderly men from the point of view of managing the household and maintaining health, whereas women are “more likely to feel stress and believe their role in the marriage restrictive and frustrating”.
Since women generally have a longer lifespan than men, many older wives suffer the consequences of the burden of care because they often have to devote themselves to the care of her husband throughout his life. (Katerina Trevisan)
In another study it was found that even in young women husbands cause more stress and require more care than the kids!
It turned out that for many members of the fairer sex marriage requires the same effort and motherhood. As it turned out, the average mother assesses the level of stress from family life, 8.5 out of 10. Moreover, 46% of women who participated in this study reported that their husbands cause them more problems than little kids!
Here is a summary of the survey results:
75% of married women claim that the majority of the responsibilities for the upbringing and care of the child rests solely on their own shoulders;
20% of young mothers argues that the main reason for their stress is the lack of assistance from her husband;
Almost all the women interviewed stated that in most cases their stress is the result of a lack of time due to household duties on the farm.
In addition, scientists from the University of Padua found that after the death of wives ‘ health was deteriorating their husbands, but when women lose their husbands, then in fact become healthier and it is easier to cope with depression and stress. The researchers suspect that this is because men tend to rely more on their partners for marriage, rather than Vice versa.
Married women scientists are advised to always remember that spouses are full-fledged partners. So make sure you spend personally on myself as much time as taking care of her husband.
