New research in Britain seems to indicate that staying married has many benefits for both adults and children.

Prof. Mike Murphy of the London School of Economics was quoted as saying:” All the evidence shows that there is something in marriage itself that is a benefit”.

The study shows that married couples live longer, enjoy better health and can rely on more home care than their divorced, widowed or single peers.

Widowed men and single mothers had the worst health suffering more acute and chronic conditions while married people of both sexes enjoyed the best health. Single, widowed and divorced older women had higher mortality rates than their married peers.

Many benefits for you…to get married or stay married !
