According to multiple studies, men tend to live 6 to 7 years longer if they are this.
Being married can extend men’s lives by an average of 6 to 7 years. The reason? Wives tend to encourage their husbands to be healthier and visit the doctor more often. The same can not be said for women. Being married does not affect women’s longevity at all. Also, if the wife is happy in the marriage, the husband tends to be happier but the husband’s level of happiness has no affect on the wife! “Happy wife, happy life” seems to be true. Today is my lovely wife Cheryl’s birthday. Happy birthday, dear! And thanks for extending my life by 6 to 7 more (glorious) years!
