Is Marriage worth the investment for Men?

Is Marriage worth the investment for Men?According to a new survey by Wilcox and Wolfinger called ‘Men and Marriage, debunking the Ball & Myth chain’, which is: “Marriage is not worth it for men. It’s not worth the practical and financial sacrifices, the lost romantic opportunities, or the “lack of freedom.” But despite the prevalence of this ‘ball and chain view of marriage’ it is simply not supported by the research, say W&W. They explain: Indeed, the benefits of marriage for men are substantial by every conceivable measure, including more money, a better sex life, and significantly better physical and mental health. Yet many men remain ignorant of these benefits, a view seemingly promoted by popular culture, says the report. Citing the following stats to prove their point:
When it comes to work and money, marriage has a transformative effect upon men. Married men typically work harder, smarter, and more successfully. They are less likely to be fired. And they make about $16,000 more than their single peers with otherwise similar backgrounds.
When it comes to Sex, while single and married men report having the same amount it’s not the same if ‘quality’ matters. On average, the quality of married sex trumps that of unmarried sex. According to the National Health and Social Life Survey, 51 percent of married men reported they were extremely satisfied with their sex lives, compared to
39 percent of cohabiting men and
36 percent of single men.
Physical and Mental Benefits: The report highlights that men who get and stay married live almost 10 years longer than their unmarried peers. What’s more, marriage benefits health in numerous and surprising ways. For instance, a recent Harvard study found that even among men diagnosed with cancer, married men live significantly longer.
