Fighting with your spouse may actually help you live longer.

Researchers at the University of Michigan looked at 192 couples over 17 years. They compared couples that expressed their anger, and resolved the conflict, and other couples where either one or both spouses suppressed their frustration.

Researchers found those who contained their anger were more likely to die at a younger age than the couples who expressed their thoughts and worked out their problems.
