Michigan State University sociologists have researched the topic of divorce and health, and have found a connection between health problems and age when divorced.
There were 1,282 participants in the study, which spanned over a 15 year timeline. Several factors were examined during that time, including: age when married, age when divorced, health status throughout marriage, and health status throughout divorce. The findings were published in the Social Science & Medicine magazine.
The study showed that individuals who went through a divorce between the ages of 35 and 41 suffered from more health complications than people who experienced a divorce at a later age. These results were compared to the health statuses of the participants who stayed married throughout the entire course of the study.
If you are considering divorce, it is important to have experienced representation on your side. Please contact the Colleyville divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates by calling 817-756-4040 today.
