Men who live alone 'are more likely to die young'
« on: August 07, 2017, 08:54:39 AM »
MIDDLE-AGED men who reject family life and choose to live alone are more likely to die earlier than their married counterparts, Government figures published yesterday reveal.

They are also significantly more prone than married men to a variety of debilitating illnesses such as diabetes and rheumatism, said the study released by the Office for National Statistics.

The findings come against a backdrop of research which shows that married couples tend to enjoy better health than unmarried people.

Single men over the age of 45 are 23 per cent more likely to die earlier than married men, according to the report, which tracked the progress of around 250,000 men over the course of almost 30 years.

Those who were divorced carried a 31 per cent increased risk of death within the first 10 years of divorce, while those who were widowed were 20 per cent more likely to die sooner than others.

It never changes a thing. I have tried it hundreds of times. Sometimes what they need is a swift kick in the ass.

You are correct, of course. I sometimes take the high road, but I'm never comfortable there.

Around here if a rooster starts dictating what and where I can go and do freely, and starts badgering me, he's supper.
