Is Marriage Better For Men Or Women?


Both men and women are happier if they're happily married.

When it comes to marriage, the running joke is that all women want to get married and all men dream of being bachelors forever. While there may be some truth that men enjoy the freedom of being single, the fact remains that there are a variety of benefits to being married. Or rather, happily married. 

Relationship experts Bonnie Eaker Weil, John Gray, Tammy Nelson, Christine Baumgartner and Susan Campbell discuss the numerous benefits of marriage (besides tax breaks) and why you'll probably be healthier if you're in a happy union.
