Why get married? The benefits of tying the knot-Grant Hill

1. It's More Important to Your Happiness than Your Money or Owning a Home

A U.K. study found that being married "is 20 times more important" to someone's happiness than money and 13 times more than owning a house

Study found that married people were happier than those who are "cohabitating, single, divorced, or widowed."

2. Married Couples Tend to Live Longer

New studies find that those who are married live longer than those who cohabit

In a study of 200,000 people from 1997-2004, researchers found a 80 percent drop in mortalities in men in conhabitating relationships and a 59 percent drop for women

Married Couples have "lower levels of heart disease, cancers, flu, Alzheimer's, depression and stress."

3. Married Men Earn More Money Than Single Men.....So More Money for The Couple!

Men who are married make 10-40% more than single men

They receive promotions more frequently than single men!

Married men "tend to save more than single men"- more money for the rest of the family!

4. Marriage is Good For Your Mental Health!

Those who are married are "less depressed, less anxious, and less psychologically distressed" than those who are single, divorced or widowed

Divorces decrease the mental health of men and women and increase depression and hostility

In a study, when people got married, their mental health improved "consistently and substantially"

Those who marry are less likely to struggle with substance abuse problems

5. Your Kids Will End Up Loving You More

Divorce or separation weakens bonds between children and their parents

On average, adult children of divorced parents describe their relationships with their parents negatively

Children that divorce see their parents less often than children that have married parents
