A desire to raise children together is one reason many couples wed, but getting hitched might also be better for your health. That's right, a growing body of evidence has suggested marriage may be beneficial for men and women from a health and wellness standpoint.

Couples may also be able to urge spouses to make appointments for routine health screenings and follow up on doctors' appointments. - Greater financial security: Money is a primary source of stress for many men and women. But living in a dual-income household can ease some of that stress and the potential health problems that come with it. Some research has indicated that married men make as much as 40 percent more money than comparable single men, even after accounting for education and job history. Marriage could be seen as an indication of security and trustworthiness, traits appealing to a company. Increased intimacy: According to information compiled by Richard Niolon, Ph.D., nearly half of all married people engage in intimate relations twice a week, compared to 20 to 24 percent of single and cohabitating men and women. Sex releases endorphins that improve mood, can be classified as moderate exercise, creates a feel-good environment that can reduce stress and promotes further contact between couples. Improves mental health: Many people joke that getting married removes freedoms that lead to happiness, but researchers find that this isn't the case. In their book, "The Case for Marriage: Why Married People Are Happier, Healthier, and Better off Financially," authors Linda WaRe and Maggie GaUagher found married men are only half as likely as bachelors and one-third as likely as divorced guys to take their own lives. Wives are also much less likely to commit suicide than single, divorced or widowed women. Married people are much less likely to have problems with alcohol abuse or illegal drugs. An international study of 17 developed nations from Steven Stack and J. Ross Eshleman found that "married persons have a significantly higher level of happiness than persons who are not married," even after controlling for gender, age, education, children, church attendance, f'mancial satisfaction and self-repor(ed health.
