February is heart awareness month, so this study in the European Society of Cardiology caught my eye. It says that being unmarried increases the risk of fatal and non-fatal heart attacks in both men and women regardless of age.

Even when the couple is unmarried but co-habitating, there is a better prognosis after coronary events before and after hospitalization.
