A University of Arizona study observed women from ages 50-79 over three years and concluded that divorced women made healthier lifestyle choices than those who stayed married.
According to the data, women who were already married and stayed married gained weight and decreased their physical activity. Meanwhile, those who started the study while married and then divorced lost weight, increased their physical activity and had better diets.
