Men process information certain ways as do women. It's one thing to understand men and women in general; it's another thing to understand the one you are married to.
Marriage is not about obtaining perfection, but about obtaining a proper perspective. According to studies, married people are healthier, happier, and wealthier than single people on average. Married people have better intimacy than single people. Married men in particular tend to live longer than single men. A man who remains single today is health-wise the equivalent of one who smokes 15 cigarettes per day, according to a 2019 Harvard Health survey of 127,545 American adults.
Japanese scientists reported that never-married men were 3 times more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than married men. And a study of 27,779 cancer cases found that unmarried individuals were more but more likely to have advanced disease at the time of diagnosis than married persons.
The University of Miami investigated 143,063 men with prostate cancer over a 17-year period and found that married men survived on average 69 months compared to single men who survived on average just 38 months.
Good marriages promote health and longevity, but stressful and shattered marriages have the opposite effect, especially for men. Psychology Today claims that married people are more likely to survive cancer, less likely to suffer stroke or heart attack, and less likely to develop depression and other mental illnesses.
Marriage is wonderful if it is done right.
