Your spouse can be your best exercise buddy. In a study of 3,075 people, researchers looked at marital status and activity levels. Married couples were more likely to be active, than non-married individuals. If one spouse was active, the other spouse was also more likely to be active. In highly active men, their spouse was three times more likely to be active than women of inactive husbands.

Having someone to exercise with can greatly improve your odds of being active for a lifetime. Med Sci Sports Exer.2006;38:541-46.Mar.2006
