Men and women move in together with very different expectations
| 11 July 2013
Cohabiting men are less committed than their female partners.
“Friends with benefits”: but who benefits?
Three movies on the same ghastly topic in two short years? What’s up with that?
Marry, be happier, live longer
A good, lasting marriage makes the spouses happier and healthier and increases their lifespan, compared with cohabitation. On average. That’s the net finding of a review of 148 studies in seven European countries, according to an editorial in the British Medical Journal.
Further to an earlier post on delayed adulthood, USA Today recently ran a
report headed “Dating for a decade?” on how young adults put off the
commitment of marriage for years, even though they have “paired off” and
typically live together. Nobody seems very upset about it.
