Divorced, separated, widowed, and never-married people don't live as long as those who are married (even if it is not their first marriage). The idea being, as I understand it, that if you eventually settle in with someone who suits you for your old age years, you will have more of them.
    I guess I can understand the logic behind why they would make that assumption, but it's still a hard sell for me. The fact that you can't feel happy or settled "alone" or with friends or pets or other family members.

    And I guess by marriage, they mean any serious relationship, right? Not just pen and paper, by law marriage?

    Either way, I've often heard this quoted and I guess it always confused me.

    I don't think it means you can't be happy alone. Just that being married implies a support structure and sharing of the load of everyday life that ON AVERAGE may not be present for singles or divorced people. Part of it is the practical stuff, having someone to nag you to go to the doctor regularly and stuff like that.

    And I think it means any cohabiting, long-term relationship is a marriage (whether common law or official).

    I don't think I had mine checked until I was 25 or 30.

    Sadly, that didn't factor in the territorial mama bear you encounter in the spring of 2014.

    Sure. They just don't want to.

    I always heard marriage was only beneficial to men, in terms of increased longevity.
