Fighting for a Healthy Marriage

According to a 17 year study at the University of Michigan and published in the Journal of Family Communication, good arguments might be healthy and could be the secret to a long lasting marriage. 

The study found that people who keep their anger bottled up have much higher death rates than people who let their feelings out. The researchers followed about 400 people for 17 years and found that when both partners suppressed their anger, they were both five times more likely to have died by the end of the study (mostly due to higher blood pressure and heart disease).
