If the wife nags constantly, or the man always complains, this is not healthy. In studies, it may still be claimed so often that Married or permanently verpartnerte people live longer than Singles. This is not true but only if you are going to be constantly on the nerves. If life is, however, a relationship, hell, lost almost all of the health-promoting aspects of a couple's relationship.
While relationship books and research, mainly, to the blessing or the cursing of everyday life – from partnerships in care, it is a strong bond, but often in the Background. In the process, Doctors and psychologists from the USA show that the family the health more than the intimate partner.
Of siblings, you can't get divorced
In the Journal of Family Psychology, a Team led by Sarah Woods proves that the origin of the family, so parents and siblings can be more strenuous than the Partner. And exhausting means often also harmful to health.
"The emotional climate in the family has a major influence on health and can contribute to chronic conditions develop and worsen and it is, for example, already in middle-aged to lasting headaches or even a stroke," says Woods, who is as a family physician at the University of Texas active. "Family-related stress had in our study a greater impact than Stress with the Partner."
The scientists Woods had observed 3000 adults who were mostly in their forties, for nearly 20 years and regularly interviewed. In this time, health data were collected and documented, whether and how often back pain, stomach complaints, headaches, and other ailments occurred or became chronic.
in Addition, questions on the relationship within the family as well as to partners have been made again and again ("How often they are family members – your Partner, except criticism?", "You can rely on your family, if you have a Problem?").
Chronic stress reactions cause blood vessels to clog faster, bones become more brittle, the pain threshold decreases.
"After ten years, the health status of those participants is significantly better supported by their family," says psychologist Jacob Priest, who was also involved in the study. "The emotional relationship to the Partner, and played, astonishingly, in the long term, a much less important role."
As an explanation for their findings, the researchers suggest that a partnership can terminate if it is no longer bearable to each other. Of his parents or siblings, you can, however, not a divorce, this relationship remains for life. The family climate is poisoned, the drum fire of criticism, accusations and aggression no longer, as it is a Partner exercise.
Doctors have known for some time that negative feelings and constant Levy lead to a chronic stress response and inflammatory changes in the body. In the result of blood vessels clog faster, bones become brittle, the pain threshold decreases, all organs can be attacked.
"Permanently in a bad mood in the family is detrimental; just chronic Suffering be worse," says Woods. "Conversely, I encourage patients therefore, family members in the consultation to take to support you and contribute to your well-being."
