Is Marriage Good for Your Health?  Maybe. Maybe Not.
The article "Why marriage can be good for your health" doesn't even begin to tell the whole story.


This article really misses a two key points.  Frist, Marriage can only improve your health if it’s a healthy marriage.  A healthy marriage doesn’t just happen when you say “I do”.  A good marriage takes commitment that is renewed every day by both spouses.
