Marriage is good for your health

We live to celebrate. No celebration is more special than a wedding. Denon & Doyle Entertainment knows, because we specialize in wedding entertainment. But did you also know marriage is good for your health?

It’s true! Another wonderful reason to celebrate weddings.

Comedians who like to poke fun at their spouses love to make marriage the butt of their jokes. For example:

In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.

In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.

But by the third year, they both speak and the neighbours listen.

The longterm beauty of marriage

When you set aside the foibles of each of us and look at the longterm beauty of marriage objectively, you’re faced with a shocking realization: marriage is good for your health! According to research, you will actually live a longer, healthier life if you’re married.

Marriage is good for your healthThis research was conducted by Scott Haltzman, MD, who is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown University in Rhode Island. He is the author of The Secrets of Happy Families: Eight Keys to Building a Lifetime of Connection and Contentment.

Marriage health benefits

He looked at mortality rates for married women at age 45 years of age. They have a 90 percent chance of living to age 65 verses unmarried women who only have an 80% chance of living that long.

The difference for men is even more dramatic. Married men live on average 17 years longer than single men!

Marriage IS good for your health!

Marriage is so therapeutic to men, that a married man with heart disease will live an average of four years longer than a single man with a healthy heart.

And did you know that unmarried people spend twice as much time in hospitals as married people?

Both unmarried women and men have much higher rates of depression than their married counterparts, but with men, the differential is glaring. Unmarried men are nine times as likely as married men to suffer from depression. Sometimes those who are depressed will turn to professionals for help, whilst others will end up looking for the best cheap weed Canada has on offer. Although, having said that, if you live in Canada you are allowed to grow up to 4 cannabis plants per household, so you may decide this is a better option. There is a lot to learn before a successful grow though, although you can learn a lot at There really isn’t one set treatment or cure; everything works differently for different people, but there has been a lot of studies on cannabis and the positive effect it can have on those with depression. If you are interested, you can find more information on the fat buddha website. Unfortunately though, there are many who never seek any sort of treatment at all. This is especially prevalent in unmarried men and women, as they don’t have a partner to turn to for help and support in their hour of need.

Depression in unmarried or divorced individuals may stem from the loneliness that people feel without companionship. However, as advantageous as marriage is, this loneliness as a single individual can be tackled and depleted. Often, the physical part of marriage or partnership is missed, but this can be taken into your own hands. Although there are other reasons for depression, if loneliness is causing your depressive mindset, think about looking into purchasing a sex doll. These dolls can look very realistic and allow you to receive the sexual gratification that you’d otherwise get from a partner; many people swear by these to rectifying their loneliness.

Former late night talk show host and funny man, David Letterman, even admitted that divorce is harmful to your health, but he had to insert a punchline, of course:

“According to a new survey, people who get divorced die early. People who stay married live longer. The difference is they just wish they were dead.”

Now, now Dave! Let’s remain positive! The research is in: marriage leads to happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives.
