Researchers at the Ohio State University involved 37 couples in their study. The participants were inflicted small scratches on the hands. Then the video cameras recorded all the spouses’ conversations. After 12 days, it was found that wounds healed faster in couples who almost did not quarrel.

Scientists attribute this to the action of oxytocin, which stimulates the immune system. The difficulties in the family, on the contrary, have a negative impact on health, increase the level of cortisol (stress hormone), which weakens the body. Thus, a happy family life adds to people’s health, especially to men’s one.
