Younger Wife, Longer Life
When people have nothing else to do, they start researching stuff like this.
Men live longer if they marry a younger woman, according to population statistics. What’s more, men who tie the knot with older women are more likely to die early, the study at Germany’s Max Planck Institute found.
According to the research, blokes cut the risk of premature death by 11 per cent if their wives are seven to nine years younger, reports The Daily Express.
I am not sure if having a younger wife helps you die an octogenarian- but one thing I know for sure – once you are married, life seems long anyway.
