And married people spend an average of 7.8 minutes a day
Although being single sometimes puts singles under pressure to self-doubt or pressure from society, more socializing does not mean that these people feel lonely or lonely in their lives. Instead, there is evidence that single people are more active in their social activities than those who are married, and that a large number of singles in the city enjoy a thriving public social culture. ”

Fewer legal responsibilities for single people
Getting married causes you to take legal responsibility for your partner’s financial blunders, which means sharing your debt.
On the income side, marriage is good for men and not good for women W., director of the National Marriage Research Program at the University of Virginia.
Recent research by Robert Lerman, a professor of economics at Bradfordwilcox and the American University, shows that married men seem to have more pay, while women are the opposite.
According to the results of the study, single men between the ages of 28 and 30 had reduced their annual income on personal income by about 15900 dollars compared to married couples, while single men between the ages of 44 and 46 had earned 18800 of dollars less than married men of the same age. Although the authors of the study did not believe that the results were statistically significant, on the other hand, single women between the ages of 28 and 30 earned 1349 of dollars more per year for personal income than married women aged 44 and 46, while single women between the ages of five and five earned 1465 of dollars more than married woman of the same age.
Single men work less hours than married men, while single women work more
The authors of the same study point out that income usually depends on how long men and women are committed to the workforce.
They found that 28-30-year-old single men worked 441 hours less each year than their married peers, while men between the ages of 44-46 were 403 hours less each year if they were single. Young single women work 196 hours more than married women, however, the number is negligible when married women do not have children. Middle-aged single women work more than 131 hours more than married, unless married women have no children.
Single people tend to exercise more
Researchers at the University of Maryland found that 18-64 years old, men and women who were never married exercised more every week than those who were married or divorced. Another study found that married men were 25% more likely to be overweight or obese than single men.
Married persons will live longer. However, more research suggests that single people may lose sight of their health.
A study has found that married people tend to live longer than single people.
The possible reason is that married people have better mental health and the possibility of reducing cardiovascular disease. “It could be that if someone marries, they have a spouse who urges them to take care of themselves,” said Dr. Jeffrey Berger, a heart disease prevention expert at New York University.
