Marriage is Good Nick martin

Married couples tend to live longer and adapt better to health setbacks than their single counterparts. The number of Americans who live together without being married continues to rise — from 400,000 in 1960 to 7.6 million in 2011, according to Census data. However, new research indicates that married people live longer than those that cohabit.
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 usually means sex, which is good for us - When we’re married it’s quite likely that we’ll be having sex which is good for our health too. It reduces stress and it boosts self-esteem. Having sex and orgasms increases levels of the hormone oxytocin, the so-called love hormone, which helps us bond and build trust.

Lowers blood pressure - A happy marriage is good for your blood pressure too. That’s the conclusion of a study in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine. Researchers found happily married people had the best blood pressure, followed by singles. Unhappily married participants fared the worst.
