The cost of divorce
Divorce has a lingering, detrimental impact on health that even remarriage cannot fully repair, a study suggests.
A Chicago study involving 8,652 people aged 51 to 61 found divorced people have 20% more chronic illnesses such as cancer than those who never marry.
The figure only drops to 12% for those who remarry, researchers write in the Journal of Health and Social Behaviour. . . . .
