Divorce seems to have different effect on different people.

A new study has suggested that divorced single men pay more attention to their bodies to try to win a new mate.

Women who divorce are likely to become less fit, as are men who remarry after a divorce, researchers say, but it's a different story for divorced men.

Married men are more likely to let themselves go as they no longer need to compete for a partner.

The latest study of 9,000 men and women was by scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm over eight years.

"There was a significant increase in fitness in men who divorced but a tendency towards a decrease in women who divorced," the Daily Express quoted researchers as saying.

"Single men have the pressure of keeping fit to increase their attractiveness and find a partner." (ANI)
