Marriage and life span

Marriages shorten women's average life span by 7 years, in comparision with un-married women. For men, the reversal is true. Marriages elongate their life's span up to 7 years, in comparision with un-married men.

Heard from: Delilah, a Chicago's radio station host

I guess it's true for married woemn to have their life span shorten to 7 years. We have to take care of the kids, clean and work. Double duty for us.

My favorite statistic to throw out in conversation when someone else uses a statistic is.... "42.7% of all statistics are made up on the spot".

I think living with men just shortens life spans, period. Living with women, on the other hand, well - who else is going to coax you to eat texturized vegetable protein?

That is why mommy married daddy who is two years younger. But they say that people who have dogs live longer. So mommy and daddy will live a long long time. Woof woof

What a paradoxical fact. Just bear with me a second. If women make us men live longer, the only logical outcome is that the women live less than the men, because men live longer! Got it. I thought so!
