Strive For A Happy Marriage
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Everybody hopes to live a long life. If a person lives a long life, he can spend more time with loved ones. He can earn more money. Living a long life will also allow people more time to pursue their dreams. There are several practices to adopt if you want to live a long life. Exercise regularly, avoid smoking, get enough sleep, have a healthy diet, socialize--and have a happy marriage. How can a happy marriage help you to live longer?

One way that a happy marriage helps a person to live longer is because marriage provides companionship. Companionship helps people to avoid loneliness. People who live alone, while they might be happy initially, might eventually become unhappy if they continue living alone and do not get married. Loneliness can cause people to die before their time.

Another way that a happy marriage helps is because people in an unhappy marriage experience a great deal of conflict. The stress from the conflict cause them to experience physical problems. These problems can include headaches, ulcers, or heart attacks. People in a happy marriage can and do experience trouble that can cause them physical symptoms, but they are able to work together to solve their problems. Once the problems are solved, their symptoms may go away.

A third reason why people in a happy marriage live longer is becasuse when people have someone special in their lives, they will want to take care of themselves. They will want to watch their weight so that they will not have a heart attack or develop other life-threatening conditions related to weight. They will want to get enough sleep so that they will not injure themselves while they work or play.

A happy marriage increases the likelihood that a person will live longer, which will allow the person to spend more time with loved ones. He will get to see his children grow up. He will be able to go to their high school graduations. He will also get to see them get married and have children of their own.

If a person is happy in his marriage, he will be able to earn more money. As a child, he may have had a dream of being rich, for example. As everyone knows, a person does not become rich overnight. It takes patience, time, and work to become rich. If a person has a happy marriage, he can work to fulfill his dream. He might start a business, for example. The business can become very successful and allow the person to build a fortune. He will then be able to support his family and provide a good life for them.
