Is marriage really a fountain of youth? For more than 100 years, researchers around the world have found that married people, both men and women, live longer than singles. In a recent review of 53 studies of the effect of marriage on longevity2 researchers found that mortality rates are about 18% lower for marrieds in comparison with singles and there was no significant difference in that effect between guys and gals. Another national U.S. only study3 conducted over an eight-year period showed that the odds of mortality are 39% higher for widows, 27% higher for divorced and a whopping 58% higher for never marrieds in comparison with marrieds. Controlling for age, the effect held true at older ages for both sexes and was greater for younger men than younger women. In other words, married women tend to live longer than single, divorced or widowed gals. Period.
