Post-wedding report: He definitely feels happier; one big smile.

Post-Honeymoon report: Too early for that but, I almost don't have to ask her. She was so happy that there were several spots where there were tears of joy.

They're a wonderful couple, and it made me feel good just to watch them.

But part of the causation goes the other way - healthier men are more able to stay in the w*rkforce and therefore able to earn more money.

FWIW, a single 50-something guy once told me that the best thing he put into his online dating profile was this: "I have health insurance, and I use it."

I wonder how the one's that got divorced and then remarried did? And the relationship of the length of each marriage? And the findings with long common-law type unions.

I definitely eat better being married and having children is a great motivator as I suspect grandchildren would be but there is a price to pay in terms of added stress. I suspect that I would be in better physical shape if I were single and out playing the field but of course, I can't be sure.
