NEW YORK (CBSNewYork)– Women who lose their husbands experience less stress than women who have living spouses, a new study suggests.

Previous research has suggested that marriage has a positive impact on health, heart attack risk, and depression, however the latest research suggests women may actually get healthier after becoming widows, as reported by The Telegraph.

“Widows cope better than widowers with the stress deriving from the loss of a partner,” lead researcher Dr. Caterina Trevisan, of the University of Padova, told The Telegraph.

The research also suggests men are more reliant upon their wives. Trevisan said for men, having a wife may bring benefits regarding household management and medical needs.

“Since women generally have a longer lifespan than men, married women may also suffer from the effects of caregiver burden, since they often devote themselves to caring for their husband in later life,” she said.

The same study suggests single women feel less stressed than single men, experience greater job satisfaction, and have a lower risk of social isolation through strong relationships with friends and family.

“Consistently with this picture, the higher educational level and better economic status seen among the single women in our study may well reflect a social condition that would promote a greater psychological and physical well-being,” Trevisan said.

Widows deal with the loss of a spouse better than widowers, according to the study.

“Many studies have shown that women are less vulnerable to depression than men in widowhood, probably because they have greater coping resources and are better able to express their emotions,” she said. “These aspects may help to explain the lower risk of exhaustion seen in single women, who are likewise more socially integrated than single men, and consequently less exposed to frailty.”

The study included almost 2,000 individuals over the age of 65, including 733 men and 1,154 women.

The findings suggest that widows were 23 percent less likely to become frail than married women.

“Unlike the results seen for male gender, widowed women showed a significantly lower risk of frailty than married women, with a lower incidence of unintentional weight loss or low daily physical activity levels,” Trevisan said. “Our results partially contrast with previous reports of a weaker, but still protective effect of marriage on mortality, health status, and depression in women, as in men.”

Researchers say more studies are needed to see whether social structure aspects may have impacted the findings.

Every woman I have known that got a life insurance settlement when their husband died was fucking elated! Every single one.
The ones who got nothing because the husband was an idiot were sour and disappointed they got left holding the loose ends.

"Coping Mechanism" = Fresh new dick

There is a saying along the lines of ... " A widow starts looking for her next partner at her husband's funeral". Makes perfect sense if you've ever witnessed how quickly girls move on after a breakup or women after a divorce. They don't love us the way we love them.

It's a survival trait so they could survive if their mate was killed. They don't form strong emotional bonds the way men do. It's mostly a façade, a veneer, an adaption to ensure their own survival. They can't love you the way you love them. But they can sure as hell make it seem like they do when they want things to look a certain way.

I think this war bride concept may explain part of it.

This is why I don't mind dying alone and why it doesn't affect me when people tell me I will die alone. At least when I die alone I won't have someone who is overjoyed at my death. Fuckin a man.


RE: Women experience less stress after their husbands die - spokepoker - 04-26-2016 01:33 AM

Don't they have children and grandchildren to support them? Even if they don't get a payout, they still have support structure in place. Men don't have the same thing, they worked to build their life, and are expected to continue doing the same, because they have the ability to do so. Women aren't expected to strive alone, because they really can't.
That's just the way life is.

Fuck women, Predator is a superior relationship experience.


http://www.thedailymash.co.uk/news/society/marriage-still-not-as-good-as-predator-say-men-201003012516
-----------------------------------------------------------
MARRYING a woman who shares your hopes and dreams is still nowhere near as good as Predator, according to a new survey.

A poll of husbands for Bride magazine found that 80% rated the Schwarzenegger epic had higher levels of excitement and intellectual stimulation than a lifetime commitment to some woman.

Nathan Muir, from York, said: “The scene where Arnie looks up from the body of a pal who’s just had several major organs vaporized by a seven foot skull-collecting merchant of death and says – ‘if it bleeds, we can kill it’, sums up what it is to be a man.

“Don’t get me wrong – I like my wife. But I love Predator.”

Tom Logan, from Finsbury Park, went so far as to have a Predator-themed wedding to wife Jane in July 2001.

He said: “When Jane’s father walked her down the aisle we had the Vicar dress up as Predator, leap out from behind the altar and pretend to slit her throat.

“Fake blood sprayed everywhere and her dad fell to the floor screaming. He didn’t have a clue what was going on. Meanwhile my Nan had some sort of vomiting fit, crossed herself and then collapsed in a heap.”

He added: “We still go and see her about once a month but she’s not really aware of other people anymore.”

Women see men as a means to resources or status. They don't love, they covet, they desire and they wish for the means to buy more status items.

If they get money after their husband dies, it's the best of both worlds. They don't have a husband who might have expectations of them and they have access to all of his money without him telling her, "No, you can't buy that." He's literally providing more status dead than he was alive - and now she doesn't have to listen to him complaining about cleaning the house, cooking, sex, her weight, etc.

She's stress-free because she has no responsibilities, plenty of money and doesn't feel the lost of her husband because the best part of him is still with her.

The men are less stressed too you'll find.

Why do husbands die before their wives?




















They want to.

I thought it was from the wife's constant soul sucking, cell killing nagging.

Hmm, I think this is a delicate line. Bitches born after 1960, yep, full on cunts.
Prior to 1965, is a real toss up.

My grandmother, a class act, was vastly affected by the loss of my grandfather. In her last months, I guess she said multiple times that she was ready to be with him again. She passed in 2014 and sometime around 2008-2011 she basically said her granddaughters don’t know how to be moms and is done with this world.

Same with my highschool GF’s mom. Her husband passed away and the women was crippled. She spent days in bed. Destroyed. It harmed her so bad that she put up a huge defensive wall around her kids.

At least a 30-35 year age gap between these two, maybe more. But a noticeable trait between them is they were both religious, had “some control” over their emotions, and believed in gender roles.

Ok, my NAWALT spoof, later stage bitches don’t give a fuck. They judge for resources, we judge for femininity and looks. On and on we go.

I've got a few women in my surroundings who's husbands are in their early 60's.
These are men who worked hard their entire lives and diligently followed conventional medicine advice (take meds to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, glucose levels, stomach acid,...) but never paid attention to their diets or exercise.
Unsurprisingly, many of them start to encounter serious health problems and have far lower energy/work capacity than they used to have.

I overheard conversations between the women on multiple occasions and this is what they had to say about their husbands:
"He completely lets himself go, like he's an old man."
"He does nearly nothing. How can his energy be that low?"
"I didn't sign up for this when I got married."
And a bunch of other bitching and moaning.

No shit, their husbands have slaved their entire lives so they could live in a nice big house in the countryside and give a good education to their children but the moment he gets sick they start complaining.

These are women in their 50's who's own smv is below zero, so they stick with their husbands and offer them some support.
But I've got no doubt that, if they had other healthier options, they would have quit their men.
Shows again that women have no concept of loyalty or love; once you stop offering tingles, money or status they want to get rid of you.

That part was the woman's responsibility.

I know of 3 situations wherein the women filed for divorce within a year after the men retired. When he was no longer adding money to the pot, she took "her half" which turned out to be 60-65% plus alimony and left.

One of them notified her husband that she was filing for a divorce 8 hours after he had foot surgery and was on the toilet sick from the Oxy they gave him for post-op pain. It was literally coming out both ends and she waltzes in, tells him she was filing for a divorce and left him alone that night. He had to call his son to come stay with him.

Is it sad this fact doesn't surprise me at all?

Despite our bad rap, men are clearly the more loving and romantic of the two sexes (and yes, there are only two). Compare men to dogs, that when their owner dies, refuse to leave their side. Women, on the other hand, are more like cats, who would likely start snacking on their dead owner's body before it even grows cold.

Generally speaking, when a man loses his wife, he considers it a tragedy. But apparently when a woman loses her husband, it's merely a chance to act out in real life the plots of all the BS chick flicks and trashy romance novels she's read over the years...on the dime of the dead husband, no less.

To any guys out there reading this still considering marriage, if you haven't already seen it, I recommend checking out "The War of the Roses" with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner. It's about a guy who marries the woman of his dreams only to discover far too late she's actually a nightmare. Despite having given her everything she's ever asked for: a beautiful home, children, pets, etc., she's still not happy. Once she's acquired everything from him she could never have gotten all on her own, she files divorce papers. She wants to continue living the lifestyle she's grown accustomed to, only without him...and to what degree she's willing to resort to getting him out of the picture is even scarier.

Here's a trailer:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOFhU4foWyA

Personally, I think if a woman wants to continue living a certain lifestyle a man provides her, she better stay with THAT man...or else be prepared to go out and work her ass off in order to live that life. Of course, most won't actually do this and will instead subject a man to divorce rape and/or find themselves a new stooge to do their bidding.

This problem (widow happy her man is dead) may explain how the practice of Sati started or why it was done.

More like to prevent the widow from inheriting the man's life worth, and to give that estate instead immediately to his surviving sons, for the estate's protection and his sons' benefit.

Pimp's gotta be ice cold, man.

"New studies reveal" equates to, a study with a political agenda or a very narrow scope has been broad interpreted to contradict another similar study.

Academia is fucked but the media is even more fucked up when it comes to interpreting reports.
