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.
More and Better Sex
The reality is that married men are having better and more frequent sex than their single buddies who go to clubs each weekend trolling for a woman who’s willing to take them home. 50% of married men find their sex life physically and emotionally fulfilling, compared to only 38% of co-habitating couples.
Married Men are Healthier
Researchers found that marriage had positive outcomes on bone mineral density (BMD), especially for married men, who exhibited better bone mineral density than men who were widowed, separated, divorced or never married. This was especially true for men who married after the age of 25.
Married Men are Wealthier
Married men earn between 10%-40% more than single men. They also receive promotions more frequently and earn more glowing performance reviews than their single co-workers.
Married People Live Longer
Marriage has been found to have health benefits, too: earlier this year, a study by Duke University Medical Center revealed that people who were never married were more than twice as likely to die early as people in a long-term relationship.
