10 Advantages of Being Married
By Busola Agbabiaka

Congrats to me, my marriage is twelve years old and sweet has it been all the way. Yes, there have been some lows but I just discovered that those were just moments of cementing the relationship. Now I begin to wonder why I hadn’t gotten married earlier, we’ve been made to believe that marriage was one hell of a tie down for the man and bossing around for the woman but honestly it isn’t! While marriage can put you at risk for weight gain, it boasts plenty of health and even financial benefits, especially if you are in a happy marriage. it’s a win- win situation, you are happy, you mated is and the kids are much happier when they grow up with both parents. Read on to find out 10 advantages of being married that will help you to see marriage as an important part of life.

1. Longer life
Numerous studies show that a risk of mortality of married couples is twice lower than that of unmarried couples. Married people are able to adapt better to a number of health setbacks. When you have a sweetheart and a family, you take better care of yourself, avoid taking unnecessary risks and live a longer, healthier life. So, want to live longer? Get married. Just make sure your relationship is really healthy. You won’t live a long life if you are unhappy in your marriage.

2. Taking better care of yourself
A happy marriage is the key to a good health and longevity, and a happy family means having a lot of fun daily, especially if you have kids. That’s because they take more responsibilities towards their spouse and children, and they are less likely to harm themselves and they also take better care of themselves.

3. Lower risk of STDs
Married women and men have a lower risk of STDs, because they have a regular and stable sex life with only one partner. Plus, married couples attain bigger satisfaction because of having sex with a partner they trust and love. This reduces the chance of getting STDs due to unsafe sex. Sure, if your husband is cheating on you or you are cheating on him, you won’t have a lower risk of STDs. Moreover, you can ruin your marriage. Once you’ve taken your vows, do everything not to break that trust. Love each other and be faithful to each other.

4. Better health
Another advantage of being married is that women have better health. Good sex contributes to a full sense of happiness and satisfaction that promotes better health. Studies have shown that married couples enjoy better physical and mental health than those not married.

5. Drinking less alcohol
Recent research shows that married men and women have less addiction to alcohol. Married people rarely suffer from depression or turn towards alcohol. They believe that life has far more fulfillment and happiness without drinking alcohol.

6. More earnings
Although it is reported that married women and men spend more money, they also earn more money. Married people have a great stimulus in life in the form of their spouse and kids. And this helps them to achieve higher social status

7. Easier to bring up kids
It is relatively easy to raise children in an environment where both the father and mother share their responsibilities in taking care of children. Married people provide happier and safer home for their children than single parents.

8. Better quality of life
Married couples can afford an apartment or a home in a nicer more respectable neighborhood. Married people also improve their quality of life. It is easier to pull the load with someone else than to do it on your own.

9. Lifelong companionship
A happy marriage also helps to ward off feelings of loneliness that people can experience in their lives. The sanctity of marriage offers people a lifelong companionship that is quite difficult to get these days.

10. Health benefits
Married men and women experience numerous health benefits due to their marriage. Typically such benefits include preserving their mental and emotional health, living longer, keeping their hearts healthy and so on. And it’s also easier for married people to fight the diseases.

These are all advantages of being married. What do you like most about being married? Share your thoughts with me busolamie@yahoo.com, please!
