Who Funds Such ‘Studies’

Husbands' hostile and anti-social behaviour exacerbates symptoms of depression among their wives, says new research.

Nearly 10 per cent of the US population suffers from a depressive disorder, according to the National Institute of Mental Health.

Christine Proulx, professor at Michigan University (MU), who led the study, attributes some of it to marital hostility.



They actually needed to do a research / study to come to that conclusion! People seriously have way too much time on their hands.

"In the study, husbands' marital hostility was significantly related to increases in wives' symptoms of depression," said Proulx.


"The more hostile and anti-social behaviour exhibited by husbands, the more depressed their wives were after three years," added Proulx.

You don't say!!!

These findings suggest that husbands' treatment of their wives significantly impacts their psychological well-being and that hostile behaviour has a lasting effect on couples that continues throughout their marriages.

No shit!

In contrast, warm, positive behaviour from husbands lessened the negative impact of their hostile behaviour.
