Could the secret to living a long life be single life? A woman who is related to someone who has lived for over a century has shared her views on long life and what she believes is the secret to it.
Diana Heaton, the 80-year-old niece of a woman who has lived for 106 years, expressed that she believes that her aunt's longevity is due to being single. She stated that her aunt avoided the stress that comes with marriage and relationships.
The 106-year-old woman who was identified as Madeline Dye lives in South Yorkshire, England. Dye was born in 1912, she worked as a bookbinder.
Heaton who revealed that her aunt never had a boyfriend, explained that her aunt did not live in a nursing home until she was 103 years old. She noted that the woman was moved to the nursing home after she had a bad fall.
She stated that Dye has always been independent. She had lived on her own, cooked for herself and maintained the house herself.
Heaton said: “She does still dress herself and goes into the common room and chats with people. She has a great sense of humor still, she has never lost it. Whenever anyone asks her about her past romances or if she has a husband, she says, ‘I’ve never had one, that’s why I’m this age.’ She says she has not had the stresses of marriage; it’s tongue-in-cheek more than anything. She has always loved her clothes and has always dressed immaculately.”

She added: “When she was 103, she asked if I could change some curtains for her in a bedroom."
"I said I would do it the next day and when I arrived she said 'do you like the curtains - look what I've done?’ She changed them and carried some steps from the cellar up the stairs to her front bedroom.”
