Marriage can change a man. It is often said that "marriage can change a woman's fate", but multiple scientific studies have found that marriage has a far greater impact on men than women, especially bringing nine magical changes to men.
1. Bones become stronger. Researchers have found that men who get married around the age of 25 have stronger bones than those who have never married or failed their marriage.
2. The heart becomes healthier. Love is beneficial for heart health, and men can benefit more from it. Research has found that unmarried men have a three fold higher risk of developing heart disease than married men, and their risk of dying from heart disease is 46% lower than unmarried men.
3. It is easier to gain weight. A survey shows that 60% of men begin to gain weight after marriage, and a regular, caring lifestyle and relaxed mood are the main reasons for men's weight gain.
4. Work harder and earn more money. Compared to single men, married men have a more stable financial situation and steadily increase their income. Sarah Jane Green, a policy analyst at the Center for American Progress, explained that most countries' cultures believe that "men should be the breadwinners", so married men will work harder and have more opportunities for promotion and pay rise.
5. Increased ability to cope with stress. In life, men are more susceptible to stress than women. A study conducted in 2010 showed that men with spouses have lower levels of stress hormones and stronger ability to regulate stress.
6. Reduce alcohol consumption. Statistics have found that married men drink less alcohol than when they were single. In contrast, married women actually drink more alcohol than married men, and also drink more than divorced or widowed women.
7. Become more 'masculine'. Marriage will make men more assertive and responsible. In terms of sex, regular sexual activity can improve the quality of male sperm and maintain sexual function for a longer time.
8. More likely to defeat cancer. There is a certain correlation between cancer and marriage. Research has found that married cancer patients, regardless of the stage of cancer, have a 20% lower risk of dying from cancer; Married men have a 17% lower risk of cancer cell spread than unmarried men.
9. There is also a 'female affinity'. A survey found that both married and single women have a better impression of married men and are more willing to confide in them. Because married men have a better understanding of women and are more gentle towards others.
