A new study shows people who are married have fewer heart problems.

FOX News Radio's Dave Anthony reports:

We all know:

(Frank Sinatra) "Love and marriage... go together like a horse and carriage"

And they're also good for the heart. A new study of more than three million Americans finds married couples are less likely than people who are single, or divorced or widowed to suffer any type of heart or blood vessel problem. Especially those 50 and younger. Among big risk factors, smoking was highest among the divorced. Obesity more common in those single or divorced. A lead New York University researcher says it might just be those who are married have someone who encourages them to take better care of themselves.
