People with happy and optimistic partners will live healthier lives and may even be protected against dementia, suggests a new study.
Researchers say people who spend their lives with a partner who has a sunny outlook had lower risks for Alzheimer's disease, dementia and cognitive decline as the grow old together.
They believe that an optimistic partner may help develop a healthier lifestyle by encouraging things like eating a salad or exercising together.
The study, published in the Journal of Personality, followed more than 4,000 heterosexual couples for up to eight years.
