The next time you hear an old married couple complaining about their spouse’s foibles – congratulate them for lowering each other’s risk of dementia. We take it for granted when we have a loved one by our side, day-after-day. But research is showing us that married couples have a lower risk of dementia in the long run, compared to unmarried peers. The couples in the study were from Sweden. Overall, the married couples were shown to be healthier, less likely to smoke, and were routinely exercising social engagements with each other. In no way does this study encourage people to spouse-up to lower their risk for dementia but it certainly does encourage people to exercise, eat right, quick smoking, and become the social butterfly their brain so desires for the optimal memory endurance. After all, it’s not a 400-meter dash. Life is a marathon. Be thankful you’re competing as a team.
