Practice makes perfect  – not with #sex

practice perfect

I don’t know why I like facts and figures. Maybe it’s the engineer in me at work. Check out these comments by a former sociologist at Ohio State University:

Dr. Nancy Moore Clatworthy was asked,

“But doesn’t living together before marriage help to iron out some of the disagreements that every marriage inevitably must face?”

Her answer based on research work:

“…In every area, the couples who had lived together before marriage disagreed more often than the couples who had not. But the finding that surprised me most concerned sex. Couples who had lived together before marriage disagreed about it more often.”

So, contrary to popular myth, practice doesn’t help you enjoy sex better. Aww. Bad news for those banging practising hard now in preparation for their wedding night ;).

I know that this post is gonna make some people hate me, but I leave the conclusion to you to make!

#Married men live longer – are you kidding me?

newly wed

Guess what? I just found out something unusual. I’m reading The Bare Facts  by Josh McDowell and stumbled upon a couple of other unusual facts as well. Let me share some with you.

  1. Married men live longer than those who stay unmarried by an average of 10 years (I can hear someone scream, seriously?)
  2. Married men earn more money, taking into consideration the average earnings of married men.
  3. Married men enjoy sex better – still speaking of averages.
  4. The kids of married couples are generally more successful in life
  5. The kids of married couples are more likely to earn a college degree
  6. Men who cohabit may not last long in marriage. Cohabiting couples who eventually get married are twice as likely to divorce as those who don’t cohabit before marriage.
  7. Married men accumulate more assets than unmarried men. (Is someone squirming like me, thinking, “How do they do it despite all the family expenses? “)
  8. Marriage generally improves mental health – while marital crisis and divorce are out of the picture.

Without further ado, armed with the above facts, I am heading for the altar ASAP!

Truthfully, I’m yet to find out why married men live longer. Please drop a line in the comments if you know why.
