Marriage is good for lots of things — your tax bill, for example — but did you know that it can also be beneficial for your health?

Todd Tucker claims that his recent marriage to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss hasn’t just improved his overall quality of live, it’s actually made him a healthier human being, as well.

In a new interview with OK! magazine, Todd reveals that his doctor noticed that the producer’s blood pressure had dropped since teaming up with even-keeled Kandi.

“Marrying her is definitely the best decision I’ve made in my life,” says Todd. “It’s so funny, they say when you get married you live longer and it is true. When we got engaged, my blood pressure actually started going down. I had a little high blood pressure and as we got engaged and got married I went back to the doctor and they were like, ‘Oh your blood pressure is really good.’ So I definitely feel the benefits of the marriage.”

As for how he deals with the constant stress of celebrity — and Mama Joyce — Todd says, “I’ve just generally let things roll off my back and just deal with the problem. And for this I tried to take that same attitude of not letting the BS affect me and just deal more so with making Kandi happy and moving forward with our situation. So that’s what I did, I just blocked everything out and paid it no mind.”
