It may take a while for the poll to get going, the married ones have to find out how they're supposed to vote first.

A poll I'd be interested in would be 'are single people more or less productive in their careers/persuits than married people'. Stats have shown for a long time the longevity of being married.

I doubt very seriously this bachelor will live longer than the average married man.

Probably married men. But I have no idea why. I'm betting the opposite is true of women. And I have an idea why but I'm not sayin'.

Do you know why most men die before their wives do?


They want to!

Married men don't live longer, it just seems like it. Got that one out of the way. ;)

Married men eat more healthful food than bachelors. Let's face it, the average guy would be fine getting his daily vegetable in the form of the tomato and lettuce on his cheeseburger. Married guys generally eat a better balanced diet.

married men ... But that's not a good reason to get married.

Forget longer. The extra years come when you're 70 or 80 or (gah) 90 when life is just an aged shipwreck of medicine and pampers and lonliness. Who wants to live extra years where the highlight of the day is a good bowel movement.

Who lives happier? That's the question.

Assuming that the average married guy has a wife that does all the cooking and manages the meal planning consistently?

Is it 1954 where you live? ;)

Especially when it occurs while you are sitting in the dining room at the retirement home.

Or go ahead and vote and ask for forgiveness later.


I'll say married guys.

Bachelors worry, being shot in the back on the downstroke by jealous husband. Can shorten the lifespan considerably.

Nah, I do all the cooking, but it's me who tries to keep things healthy, wifey would be happy with meat and potatoes every night. I think it comes down to the realization that once you are married, it's not just about you anymore. Especially once kids get involved. You WANT to see them grow up, be able to play ball with them, dance at weddings, etc. So you try and stay healthier than if it was just you.
