Tying the knot may help strengthen your heart!

A study of more than three and a half million people found married people have lower rates of heart problems than those who are single, divorced or widowed.

The researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center found the relationship between marriage and lower odds of vascular diseases is especially strong for people under age 50.

Experts say this isn't a reason to get married, but doctors who have unmarried patients may want to pay attention to other heart risk factors.
