Fighting with spouse hard on the arteries

Fighting with spouse hard on the arteries

Next time you feel like screaming at your wife or bawling out your husband, remember this:

Your heart really REALLY isn't into it.

Indeed, if your spousal relationship resembles an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond, your coronary arteries could be paying a lethal price, according to a new study from the University of Utah.

The study, which looked at the psychosomatic effects of spousal bickering on the heart, suggests that both aggressive and controlling behaviour can lead to an accelerated hardening of the arteries, Utah psychologist Tim Smith says.

"People get heart disease for lots of reasons," says Smith, listing smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet as prime culprits.

"But somewhere on that list would be `Pay attention to your relationships,'" he said in a media release.

Smith, who studied 150 couples over three years, says both hostile and controlling behaviour can lead to a heightened risk of arterial disease. He says, however, that these two major irritants affect men and women quite differently.
