Being A Widow Can Improve Your Health- Research

Being a widow can be good for a woman's health because they suffer less stress after her husband dies, according to new research.

But the same is not the case for men who become more at risk of wasting away once their wife dies - possibly because they have become over reliant on them.

Dr Caterina Trevisan, of the University of Padova, said the presence of a wife may bring benefits for men in terms of household management and healthcare, whereas women are 'more likely to feel stressed and find their role restrictive and frustrating.'
