HEALTH IN MARRIAGE

Page 2

Marital bliss

            A happy marriage is the key to a happy life-more important than feeling well off, being in work, or being happy with where you live. But equally, happy people are more likely to make happy marriages, according to Dr. Robin Russell and Dr. Pamela Wells, of Goldsmiths' College, London.
            Their study of more than 1,200 married couples showed that the quality of the marriage was the most important predictor of happiness, suggesting that "good marriages do tend to correspond to the Mills and Boon ideal," Dr. Russell said.
            The only other predictor that stood out in the study was whether people worried a lot, the psychologists said.
            Factors which affected the quality of the marriage included sexual relations with in-lows, and how satisfied people were with their home. Whether people were neurotic was also important-those who were proved less happy, has a less satisfactory marriage, which lowered their happiness still further, and made their partner less happy by lowering the quality of the marriage as seen by the partner.
            But in terms of predicting happiness, the quality of the marriage was "of paramount importance", the psychologists said. "It does seem you can have love in a garret, Wells said, "Material things seem not to matter too much." 

Good Health Is Basic

            Ideally, two people planning marriage should have perfect health. Ideal conditions, however, rarely exist. If one partner has a communicable illness, he may transmit it to the other. If one partner has a hereditary disease, it may be passed on to the children. If the husband is chronically bedridden, it becomes necessary for the wife, who may be untrained, to earn a living; if the wife is hospitalized for a long period, the strain upon the husband may be great. The result of any of these conditions may be great. The result of any of these conditions may be a deep emotional disturbance for the couple.
            Diabetes is a hereditary disorder. If diabetes should be present on both sides of the contemplated marriage, even though neither of the prospective marriage partners actually has the disease itself, then it is possible that as many as 25 per cent of their children may have diabetes. In such an instance, wherein both the prospective marriage partners would be known as carriers of diabetes, the actual number of children who would have the disease would vary according to circumstances. If the children of this union lived long enough, and especially if they suffered from over-weight, then about 25 percent could be expected to have diabetes.
            On the other hand, if diabetes is known to be present on only one side of the planed marriage, it is unlikely that any of the children will actually have the disease themselves, although all of them would be carriers of the disorder.
            Most mental illnesses are probably not hereditary, although some authorities believe that the severe depressive states are inherited in about 80 percent of the cases. By "depressive states" is not meant variations in ordinary moods, but severe depressions. A tendency toward them is more likely to be due to heredity than any of the other common mental illnesses.
            Rheumatic fever, it is believed, is due to heredity in the sense that the person who has an allergic reaction to streptococcal infections of the throat is more liable to get rheumatic fever. It is the allergic state sheikh is inherited.         
            Epilepsy is not hereditary, but a brain wave pattern is inherited, and some patterns are abnormal in that they make the individual more likely to suffer epilepsy.  
            Communicable disease is an obvious hazard to marriage. Disease is spread by the intimacy of man and wife. Moreover, a marriage begun under such circumstances carries a burden. Some states have passed laws making marriage illegal between persons with certain communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis and venereal disease.
            In the case of tuberculosis not only is the wife or husband endangered, but entire families may be infected and even wiped out if the disease is active.
A chronic illness of long duration may use up a family's entire savings and bring on heavy indebtedness. Illness is costly. Moreover, living a home in which someone is gravely ill has its emotional hazards. Responsibility for the care of the sick places restrictions upon normal activity, which exact a price. The husband of an invalid wife may resent ceaseless medical bills; the wife who has to go out and earn a living for her husband may rebel against the burden, while the patient himself may feel bitterly that he is an undeserved load upon his wife instead of being her support.
           Information of first aid, home nursing, medicines, when to call in a physician and associated problems, is important to the physical fitness of the family and at times may save a life.
Good mental health is absolutely essential for success in marriage. It is not the mere absence of mental illness that is important. It is even more vital that persons who are stable and reasonably well adjusted should know enough about the principles of mental hygiene to be able to contribute to the integrity of the family throughout its duration.
