Ah, Bliss!

As you're riding the high of planning your wedding you probably aren't thinking about the day in, day of marriage quite yet. Now would be a good time to start strengthening the bond with your partner though, for both your happiness and your health!

New research from Brigham Young University suggests that a happy marriage is good for your blood pressure, but a stressed one can be worse than being single. Previous studies have shown that marrieds tend to be healthier overall than singles, so further research is warranted—but we think we understand why being unhappy with your spouse could cause the blood to boil.

You can test the theory at home by improving your relationship with your partner before the "I do's." That way, you'll be able to keep your health—and your spouse—long into the future! [USA Today]
