Ed Young Dallas Affirms New Medical Study, Shows Marriage as Vital for Caregiving

A new medical report reveals that married heart surgery patients tend to live longer, and suffer fewer fatal complications, than non-married patients do - affirming the high view of marriage espoused by pastor and author Ed Young. Dallas, TX, April 05, 2012 --( That marriage provides a variety of built-in benefits is difficult to dispute. Even those who are not married cannot deny that marriage affords opportunities for companionship, for intimacy, and for support through life's crises. But according to a new medical study, that support is not just emotional, but even physical. Recent medical findings reveal that marriage is actually effective in helping heart surgery patients recover more successfully, and ultimately to live longer. The study affirms the high view of marriage espoused by Ed Young, a Dallas, Texas author and pastor. The results of the medical study indicate that patients who are married tend to live longer, following heart surgery, than non-married individuals do. In fact, the rate of survival, for the first three months following surgery, is three times higher among married patients than non-married patients. Overall, the study found, non-married patients are twice as likely to die as married patients are. The study's hypothesis is that having a caregiver and support system is what makes the difference—and that includes not only acts of medical caregiving, but also the presence of marital intimacy. These findings confirm the teachings of Ed Young whose views on marriage are marked by a very high opinion of the institution and its value in the lives of individuals. Ed Young's most recent book, Sexperiment, is all about the link between marriage and intimacy. In the book, Ed Young teaches about the myriad benefits that a good sex life has for a marriage—including improved communication, a greater sense of purpose, and more. Ed Young's book, Sexperiment, challenges Christian married couples to invest in a creative and passionate sex life together, as a vital step in improving the bonds of intimacy. The author challenges readers to enjoy marital sex every day for a week, and so see how it affects their marriage overall. This greater sense of purpose is highlighted in the new medical report. The study claims that married patients expressed a greater hope for the future, and a greater optimism for the rest of their lives, than non-married patients did. About: Ed Young is the founding pastor of Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas.
