Mar­riage is the Best De­ci­sion for Men

5 rea­sons why.

Woman's Era - - Long Story - By Hi­man­shu Ya­dav

We've all been brought up with the cliched phrase, "Mar­riage is the end of life for a man" echo­ing in our ears. The el­ders we meet at var­i­ous get­to­geth­ers keep blab­ber­ing about how mar­riage has brought an end to their hap­pi­ness and care­free days. How­ever, that's not truly the case. Stud­ies have proved that mar­riage in­deed in­creases your life span by many years as op­posed to the gen­eral no­tions. Mar­riage is never the end of life, in fact, it is a new be­gin­ning to a beau­ti­ful life that's right ahead of you. The re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that you share with your wife make you a bet­ter per­son and help you grow up to be the man you never thought you could be. From be­com­ing a bet­ter per­son to in­creas­ing your life ex­pectancy to keep­ing you mo­ti­vated through all the rough turns of the roller-coaster of life, there are a num­ber of rea­sons why mar­riage is the best de­ci­sion for men. Let's read about why.

Mar­ried men live longer

No mat­ter how much men com­plain about mar­riage ru­in­ing and bring­ing an end to their lives, sci­ence proves oth­er­wise. As per the re­search re­ports of the Univer­sity of Louisville, USA, mar­ried men en­joy a 32 per cent more chance of en­joy­ing a longer life as op­posed to un­mar­ried sin­gles. An­other study by the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia con­cludes that mar­ried men are five times less likely to die of in­fec­tious dis­ease and ap­prox 40 per cent less likely to have any heart dis­ease as they grow old. Mar­riage can, in fact, add up to 10-17 years to the life of men who are mar­ried.

Mar­ried men are bet­ter hu­man be­ings

Mar­ried men tend to be bet­ter hu­man be­ings than sin­gles. Stud­ies have proved this. A study con­ducted by Michigan Univer­sity con­cludes this stat­ing that men who have got hitched are bet­ter

when com­pared to those who haven't. Mar­ried men are less likely to in­dulge in any type of an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour that may term them as not so good. Mar­riage brings new re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and makes them car­ing per­sons. They are more tol­er­ant and pa­tient as they have han­dled a num­ber of ups and downs of life.

Mar­ried men sel­dom feel alone

This is some­thing ev­ery­one would agree with. Mar­ried men al­ways have some­one to talk to, to share their hap­pi­ness and fall back on when they are fac­ing any tough mo­ment of their lives. They al­ways have their dot­ing wife to go to when­ever they feel low. Un­like sin­gles who may feel alone at dif­fer­ent times of their lives, mar­ried men have their wives and chil­dren who would never let them feel lonely.

Mar­ried men are hap­pier than sin­gles

That curve on the face that is miss­ing on the face of sin­gle men can al­ways be seen on the face of mar­ried men. They may have their share of wor­ries and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties but when cal­cu­lated to­tally, mar­ried men are way hap­pier than sin­gles. A study con­ducted by Aus­tralian Univer­sity has even proved that men who marry at the right age have a 135 per cent higher hap­pi­ness score than the oth­ers. They suc­ceed in all as­pects of life and share an im­pec­ca­ble bond of hap­pi­ness with their beloveds.

Mar­ried men have fewer bad habits

Mar­riage brings with it a set of re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and mar­ried men know how to han­dle all those re­spon­si­bil­i­ties with per­fec­tion. The bad habits like drink­ing, smok­ing, gam­bling etc, are less likely to be found in mar­ried men when com­pared to the un­mar­ried. Dr Charles Sch­mitz, a lead­ing mar­riage coun­sel­lor and ex­pert in Amer­ica, shares the views that mar­ried men are likely to con­sume less or no al­co­hol when com­pared to their bach­e­lor coun­ter­parts. Suc­cess is no ac­ci­dent. It is hard work, per­se­ver­ance, learn­ing, study­ing, sac­ri­fice and most of all, love of what you are do­ing or learn­ing to do.
