Happy Valentine’s Day

Here’s some interesting studies presented in the fall 2005 issue of the magazine Marriage Partnership…

“‘Studies show that getting married improves mental health and decreases depression,’ says Linda Waite, a sociologist at the University of Chicago.  In fact, one study found that people who never walked down the aisle are more likely to be admitted to a psychiatric facility.  The intimacy found in marriage bolsters your self-worth and a sense of purpose, which actually enhances mental stability.”

“Money may not buy happiness, but according to a study at Dartmouth College, a lasting marriage can.  Researchers say having a good marriage is equal to the satisfaction gained from earning an extra $100,000 a year.  They also estimate that increasing the frequency of lovemaking from once a month to once a week can provide as much happiness as a $50,000 raise.  So you really can be rich in love!”

Interesting pieces of info!  =)

Have a great day!!
