Marital Spats, Taken to Heart by Tara Parker-Pope

From an October 2, 2007 New York Times article:

  1. In men, keeping quiet during a fight didn’t have any measurable effect on health.
  2. But women who didn’t speak their minds in those fights were four times as likely to die during the 10-year study period as women who always told their husbands how they felt, according to the July report in Psychosomatic Medicine.
  3. Other studies . . . have linked the self-silencing trait to numerous psychological and physical health risks, including depression, eating disorders and heart disease.
  4. For women, whether a husband’s arguing style was warm or hostile had the biggest effect on her heart health.
  5. The level of warmth or hostility had no effect on a man’s heart health. For a man, heart risk increased if disagreements with his wife involved a battle for control.
