Science Says Something Unexpected; “Marriage Can Actually Save You From Stress!”
For centuries there has been a stereotype joke around the concept of marriage. They say that marriage brings more stress into a person’s life. Our society being as misogynistic as it is, always showcases the male of the marriage as the victim. But, this isn’t true.
If there is any stress in a marriage then it affects both parties, the male as well as the female. But, science says something different. If you’re married or are in a committed relationship, your stress levels should be lower than someone who isn’t. How is this possible, you must be wondering? According to science, it is because we have someone to share the stress with.
1Marriage increases stress or reduces it?
This is the big question everyone asks but not many have the right answer for. Does marriage reduce stress or increase it? Well, the answer is that it depends on the marriage. If you have a happy marriage you will naturally feel less stressed and happier with life and everything around you. If you have an unhappy marriage you will be more stressed out than usual.
2How to have a happy marriage?
This is basic common sense and something we shouldn’t have to explain but there are many who still don’t get it. You should only marry someone who you really want to marry and who makes you happy. Do not marry for materialistic gains as it will be bad for you in the longe run.
3Should you leave a marriage?
Yes, even though many would have you believe that marriage is sacred and you should never go for a divorce, you have to think about yourself first. Regardless of whether you’re the male or female in the marriage, if the marriage has gone sour and there are no warm feelings left in it, you should get out while you have a chance.
4How a marriage should help you with stress
The whole point of marriage is that you have someone to share your life with and also your problems. You have someone to come home to after a hard day’s work who will give you the warmth and comfort you need and help you get your mind off things and let you relax which will naturally lower your stress levels. And you will do the same for them.
5Be prepared before getting married
Don’t listen to what people tell you about marriage. Some have good ones while others have bad ones. You can listen to what stories they tell you about their marriage but you should not take it to heart or think your marriage will end up the same way. Your marriage is what you make of it and how you and your partner handle problems. It will not be as easy as they show in movies or stories and you need to be prepared.
