Scientists say that married men live longer but marital status for women made no significant difference to longevity. Yet men usually are not into raptures over marriage, women are (at least here in Europe). I must admit that I prefer to live a shorter life with the man I love and make his life longer and happier ;-)

Re: marklurch write: Angela, In trying to understand your thought provoking statement I need you to explain a few things; Are we to assume that the man is going to be in agreement with or happy with everything happening the way the woman wants? Or are we to assume that the intuitive power of a woman is such that everything she wants to happen will be in unison with best interest of the man even he does not know so? And finally, who and or what is the agent of making everything happening the way the woman wants?

You made me smile marklurch. You know that it was a joke from a soap opera, but there is a Russian saying that there is a share of truth in each joke. Have you heard about relationships where only one person was happy? I haven't so my philosophy is that if a woman happy then a man is happy as well. On the other hand yes women, and particularly me have intuition and it has happen several times to me when things went my way and my ex listened to me he never had regrets. I am talking about short trips I insisted on, or about choosing the road, while travelling, about choosing a job, a doctor, a movie... I could list till the morning but I think it is enough...

Commented on 19-NOV-07 # 42 Do you know that the happiest relationships are those when everything happens the way a woman wants...

No I didn't Rumle, but I am sure if you make a woman happy she finds the way to make you the happiest man in the world, or one of the happiest... at least she will try..

Dear marklurch, I am afraid that my English knowledge is too weak to understand what you said. Would you paraphrase it for me?

Dearest Angela, This conflict with your earlier allusion to the importance of compromise. A careful parsing of your statement does not reveal who is the agent of making everything in a relationship to follow the path of the woman's desire. But even if the woman is not the agent of these desired events the failure to compromise when such events are not shared by the other party will rapture any blissful co-habitation.

Re: Doni111 write: I pick up more widows than widowers and I have been doing that for about 30 years.

I have never said that men live longer than women I compared married and unmarried men...

And 30 years ago experts said we had Global Cooling. Stats are what you want to make them, for example the one the anti-gunners use about a child being killed by a gun every couple seconds works if you raise the age of a child to 25. but anyway in my real life survey as a Ambulance guy, I find I pick up more widows than widowers and I have been doing that for about 30 years.

Re: jammer2 write: Granddad died three months ago at 94 years old, married at 17. Grandma died 18 months ago at 90. They had 16 kids, 14 lived to adulthood. If anything, having all those kids certainly didn't help Grandma live longer.

math sounds like grandma was 14 at time of marriage. 16 kids were a lot, but she still made it to 90!! that is impressive with or without 16 kids, and more so with! Grandpa didn't birth them and he only had 4 more than her.

Re: marklurch write: There is joke that goes ?married men live longer than single men but would happily die first?

I have heard this joke and as we Russians say there is a little truth in each joke. People are not prepared to live together, to compromise, to sacrifice... I think we need not only baby license, but marriage license as well.

Re: angelaforyou write: Phea44 I just repeated what I heard on the radio, but I found something for you: By Janelle Miles, National Medical Correspondent BRISBANE, March 18 AAP - Marriage may add almost a year to a man's life, but it does little to boost the lifespan of women, Australian researchers have found.

Very interesting angelaforyou.

There is joke that goes ?married men live longer than single men but would happily die first.? Are men afraid of marriage? For anyone but a very few making a serious long term commitment is a cause for a pause. Where you are in life will determine whether that pause trigger the flight or stand-ground response. Where you are in life is determined by the quality of your life experience, your chronology, the faith and strength in your choice, faith in the present and the confidence to forge a collective harmonious and successful future. In a sense it is not dissimilar to signing on to run a small Corporation. Not everyone wants to or is suited to such task hence the high rate of dissolution for the poor brave souls. Managing life's various transitions is no daunting task. Raising or not having children, managing success and disappointments, acquiring and growing wealth, the twin heart-ache of politics and religion and on and on.

It is for you Phea44: May 8, 2007: While being single certainly has its bliss, adults who never marry may not live as long as their wedded peers. Staying single all one's life might not be good for one's health or lifespan, according to researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Compared with married people, those who had never been married were 58% more likely to have died at the end of the study's eight-year follow-up period. However, the UCLA researchers, who published their study in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, said the findings cannot prove cause and effect. In a study conducted in 2005, Patrick Markey and his wife Charlotte Markey, a researcher at Rutgers University in New Jersey, found that being married was associated with men practising good health habits, such as seeing the doctor regularly. Married women and single women both tend to be 'health-proactive, the researchers found. Patrick Markey thinks that 'the married women may be reminding the men' about good health practices.
