    Is marriage good for your health? In general, research suggests yes. Married people live longer, have better access to health care, enjoy a more satisfying sex life, experience less stress, live a healthier lifestyle, and have lower rates of heart disease, diabetes and depression compared to their single counterparts.

    The list of health perks conferred by marriage is so long, in fact, that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has made it a centerpiece of its two-year-old, $5 million national media campaign to promote wedded bliss.

    According to the study. Married people have less stress in their lives. I think that is a bunch of hooey myself. :)

    I'll agree with this to a certain extent.

    Married men live longer because of the wife curbing some pretty bad behaviors.

    Married women live a little less longer because of the same reason.

    Women. Y'all are emotional.

    Example: Before having sex, women need a reason (love). Men on the other hand, only need a place. ;)

    What the hell does LOVE have to do with Marriage?

    Besides, love is a wonderful, mythical creation of 12th Century author Sir Thomas Mallory in his epic tome "Le Mort D'Arthur". It's not like it really exists anyway.

    If love were better marked, people wouldn't fall in so much

    Can we get some cones put out or something to give people a little warning?

    LOL. Love doesn't exist. At least Romantic Love doesn't really exist. I'm almost 37 years old and I can honestly say that I have NEVER seen or experienced it, so I have a very difficult time believing it actually exists. The closest I've ever come was a crush on the cute redhead in my fifth grade class.

    Actually it pretty much evens out. Women help men curb bad habits and get regular check ups etc. Helping with their physical health.

    Men help women's mental health. Married women tend to feel less daily stress and are less likely to be depressed.
