Study Says Your Husband, Wife Could Literally Save You From A Heart Attack

They may get on your last nerve, but it seems that having a nagging husband or wife could litterally save your life. 

Aston University researchers found married participants were 14 percent more likely to survive a heart attack as compared to single participants. 

Experts explain that marriage, and having a spouse at home, is likely to offer emotional and physical support on a number of levels -- ranging from encouraging patients to live healthier lifestyles, helping them to cope with the condition and helping them to comply to their medical treatments.

Senior author Dr Rahul  Potluri said "It's important that patients receive the necessary support to cope with [heart attacks] whether it's from a spouse, friends, family or anyone they choose to involve in their care."
