MEDFORD, Ore. -- Those who were never married, divorced or widowed had a higher risk of heart disease or stroke.

A study says that when you live with someone, they might notice symptoms of illness sooner.

It also says people who are in relationships are more likely to be reminded to take their medications, have a healthy lifestyle, and take the necessary medical steps after heart attacks.

Unmarried patients tend to wait to get medical care... and don't always follow the doctor's rules.

Having a dual income also means less stress and more money to take care of your health.
