Is divorce bad for my long-term health?

For many people in Indiana who make the choice to leave a marriage, there may be an initial feeling of relief that they no longer have to endure the stress of living in an unhappy relationship. However, that feeling can quickly be overtaken by the stress of managing a divorce. The challenges associated with dividing a marital estate, creating a parenting plan and calendar for sharing time with one's children, and navigating a changing social situation as joint friends try to figure out how to maintain relationship are just some things that make divorce so hard.

MarketWatch recently reported that different studies have shown over the years how divorce may be linked to poor physical health. One study conducted at the University of Arizona found that divorced people are more apt to smoke and less apt to exercise than are their married counterparts. Both smoking and a lack of physical activity have been directly tied to poor physical health. When under great stress, some people turn to smoking as an outlet. They may also feel they do not have the energy necessary to exercise.

Another study done earlier found similar results, noting that divorced or separated people reported lower levels of satisfaction with their lives than married people.

This information is not intended to provide legal advice but is instead meant to help separated or divorcing residents in Indiana understand some of the factors that may hurt their health after they get divorced so that they can take steps to prevent these problems.
