What's a girl to do?
to find out
Go ahead and pick both. Research shows married women are more likely to be highly satisfied with their lives compared to their single peers. And guess who was more likely to drink too much and experience higher levels of depression?
Single ladies, put your hands up.
Forgive us for stating the obvious, but a healthy marriage is, well, healthy. A female health study found that women in happy marriages have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels than singles, and are less likely to get heart disease.
Let’s see a cleanse that can do that.
Yep. The per person net worth of married individuals is almost double that of singles. Of course, there’s more to a strong marriage than money, but it tends to come in handy when you want to cross a few tropical islands off your bucket list.
Marriage is like giving yourself a raise.
Lots of things contribute to a happy marriage. Living together first isn’t one of them. A 2014 research project found that only 31% of those who lived together prior to marrying felt their marriage relationship was high-quality. Know what did help? Pretty much any form of marriage preparation—stuff like classes, books, and quality time like long talks on the beach.
Turns out when you put a ring on it, you get more than a good song—you get a pretty good life, too. That is unless you’re against having more money, better health, a stronger family, and more happiness. For everyone else, marriage is a great way to add to that wonderful little ball of awesome that’s you.
