Recently, I was reading about the benefits that marriage can have on individuals physical and mental health. A few statistics about the benefits of marriage are offered below.
a) The level of martial happiness is by far the strongest predictor of overall life satisfaction.
b) On the average, married men and women live longer and suffer fewer illnesses than do single men and women.
c) Men and women are at greater risk than average for being depressed if they do not have an intimate, confiding relationship.
