Men are more likely to die of mental illness from divorce: Study
A recent study revealed that men are more likely to die of mental illness and general ill health in the event of divorce, compared to women.
According to British media, divorce and life in the shadow of loneliness can lead to great damage to men in the middle age, as this causes a decline in the general health of men, more than women in the event of divorce.
In a survey published on Tuesday that these men who live without a companion for more than 7 years are exposed to severe stress, which leads to early death as a result of heart attacks, atherosclerosis, strokes, and mental illness.
The study added: "In a study conducted on 4,800 people ranging in age from 48 to 62 years, men were more likely to contract these diseases compared to women, due largely to the friendship relationships that women form more than men, which helps them to cross this is a difficult stage in life.
Professor Rikke Lund, one of the authors of the study from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, said: "The evidence shows that men tend to rely on their female companions more than women depend on men, and therefore men are more likely to break down if a life partner is lost."
"Men at the ages studied tend to have smaller social networks than women, so they are more likely to suffer from loneliness, which may increase the chance of disease, and there is evidence that men who live alone may not take care of themselves, and are more reluctant to consult doctor if they have health problems.”
