Question: Which is better friends or family?

The power of friendship gets stronger with age and may even be more important than family relationships, indicates new research by a Michigan State University scholar. Not only that, but in older adults, friendships are actually a stronger predictor of health and happiness than relationships with family members.

Why are friends more supportive than family?

Friends become increasingly important to health and happiness as people age, according to new research in the journal Personal Relationships. Theyre so crucial, in fact, that having supportive friendships in old age was found to be a stronger predictor of wellbeing than having strong family connections.
