This Video Shows How A Single Decision (Getting Married) Can Add 10 Years To Your Life


A TC contributor sent me this video–it asks the viewer to guess a single life choice that makes you live longer and stay healthier, it thwarts depression and increases happiness, and it gives you better sex and more money. Shockingly, it’s marriage.


It’s an ad for a jewelry company. Sure, they’ve got a vested interest in getting people to put a ring on it, but as marriage decreases in popularity it’s worth remembering why it could be worth doing. I’m as skeptical as the next 20-something (okay, more) but if someone does a study about how I can be happier and richer (and get more orgasms)–I’m all ears.
