(Undated)  --  People who are happily married live longer.  

A new study shows people who rated their marriages as very happy or pretty happy have 20-percent lower odds of dying early, compared to people who say their marriages are not too happy.  

Researchers from the University of Colorado surveyed more than 19-thousand married people, up to age 90, for more than 35 years.  

One of the co-authors says a good marriage can improve health as spouses encourage each other to eat healthy, exercise, and get regular medical checkups.  

A good marriage also provides meaningful roles and identity, purpose in life, and a sense of security.  

The survey is published in the latest edition of the journal Health Psychology.
