Marriage is Good by Nathan R.

It’s good for your health -Married couples live longer and are happier and healthier according to figures from the Office for National Statistics -The findings are the most solid evidence yet that, despite changing social attitudes and an end to the stigma of divorce and single- parenting, marriage is still good for you.
Less depression and fewer mental health problems - It’s not just your physical health that marriage protects. It makes people far less likely to suffer mental health problems too. A US study found mental health improves consistently and substantially after marriage and deteriorates substantially after divorce or separation.
Marriage leads to happiness - The U.K.’s Office of National Statistics recently surveyed 165,000 British people about their life satisfaction and anxiety levels. They found that being married is 20 times more important to a person’s happiness than their earnings and 13 times more important than owning a home, the Telegraph reported Thursday.
Cohabitation leads to longer life - Researchers Hui Liu of Michigan State University and Corinne Reczek at the University of Cincinnati looked at the national health survey data of nearly 200,000 people, taken from 1997 to 2004. They found that the rate of mortality among men in cohabitating relationships dropped by 80 percent, while the rate dropped 59 percent for women.
YOU'LL HAVE BETTER SEX, MORE OFTEN -For one thing, married people are more likely to have a sex life. Single men are 20 times more likely, and single women ten times more likely, not to have had sex even once in the past year than the married.
