In sickness and health, sex keeps older couples happy: study
By Kathleen Raven NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Among older couples, physical illnesses can strain a marriage, but maintaining a healthy sex life could make a difference in how happily both partners cope, a new study suggests. Researchers have long known the illnesses that come with age are linked to poorer marriage quality, but exactly why has not been clear. According to the new analysis, sexual intimacy is the link that keeps partners positive about their marriages in the face of difficult times, and a lack of sex makes matters worse. The results “suggest that it may be important to stay sexually connected to protect” the quality of a marriage, lead author Adena Galinsky told Reuters Health.
