We’ve all heard that married people live longer, for a variety of reasons.
But new research looking at long-time gay and lesbian couples seems to suggest that gender may have greater effect on staying healthy in a marriage than does the gender-identity of the partners.
“Women provide more social control over a spouse’s health habits,” noted Dr. Debra Umberson from the University of Texas at Austin, during the third of three programs offered in the day-long Same-Sex Couples: Frontiers in Measurement and Analysis conference held Wednesday at Bowling Green State University, and hosted by the university’s Center for Family and Demographic Research.
In addition, previous research has shown “women are more likely to be caregivers when a spouse is ill” and also to provide more social support to their spouses.
Further, people who are married are likely to smoke less and drink less than others, although they are more likely to gain weight.
So how do partners influence each other’s health behaviors?
