Researchers found that women who are married and pregnant are less likely to suffer substance abuse, depression post pregnancy and domestic abuse as compared to women who are unmarried or living with a partner.

The study also found that the longer a couple stays together, the outcomes for emotional health are better.

"What is new in this study is that for the first time we looked at the duration of unmarried cohabitation and found the shorter the cohabitation, the more likely women were to suffer intimate-partner violence, substance abuse or post-partum depression around the time of conception, pregnancy and delivery. We did not see that pattern among married women, who experienced less psychosocial problems regardless of the length of time they lived together with their spouses," said co-author Marcelo Urquia, an epidemiologist at the hospital's Centre for Research on Inner City Health.
