Married LGBTI seniors healthier and happier than singles, study finds

Married LGBTI seniors healthier and happier than singles, study finds
- LGBTI people over 50 years old who are married are happier and healthier than singles, a new study found.
The first of its kind study found better physical and mental health, more social support and greater financial resources than those who were single.
Conducted by researchers at the University of Washington, the research found increased benefits among LGBTI couples in long-term relationships, but even more benefits for married couples.
Author Jayn Goldsen said: ‘Same-sex marriage… may be one of the most profound changes to social policy in recent history.’
