We have all heard the saying happy wife, happy life.
But a recent study suggests that it may actually be happy wife, longer life.
Dutch researchers followed roughly 4,400 American couples for eight years.
Those who had a happy partner were less likely to suffer an early death than those with unhappy partners.
Experts say people often mimic their spouse’s behaviors including diet and exercise which has previously been shown to impact life satisfaction.
So if your partner is active chances are you will also have an active lifestyle as well.
Roughly 16-percent of the participants died during the course of the study and they along with their partner had reported lower life satisfaction.
