The thing is that women with their 'nagging' among other things make their partners regularly go to check-ups and listen to doctor's advice.
Research at the University of Michigan defies previous ones who claim that men in happy marriages rarely get sick. By examining the relationship of diabetes and satisfaction with their relationship with a partner, scientists have come to a surprising conclusion - the most unhappy man is in marriage, the less likely it is for him to become ill from diabetes!
Even if he gets sick, he will control the illness better than a happy 'colleague'. The reason for this is in women who by nagging force their life companion to regularly go to check-ups and to listen to the doctor's advice.
The fact that dissatisfaction with marriage reduces the possibility of becoming ill from the diabetes questions traditional assumption that satisfaction with relationship always reflects positively on health.
But women confirm this traditional belief. Members of the gentler sex are less likely to suffer from diabetes if they are in happy marriages. Scientists explain this by the fact that they are more sensible, so a stable relationship influences them positively.
In study 1228 married people aged 57 were analyzed over the period of five years, and 389 people got to the end of the process with diabetes.
