Men who remarry after a divorce or death of a spouse tend to become couch potatoes, according to a Harvard study. Researchers studied marital status and health habits of almost 40,000 men, ages 40 to 75, and found that those who remarried had an increase in body mass index and decrease in physical activity. The study appeared in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
