Young, sickly men less likely to marry and more likely to die at an earlier age?

Does it follow that being single causes a man to die earlier?

    Yes, numerous studies have confirmed this finding that married men live longer than single or separated men.

    “ If marriage protects health, the heart would be a likely beneficiary. Japanese scientists reported that never-married men were three times more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than married men. And a report from the Framingham Offspring Study also suggests that marriage is truly heartwarming. Scientists evaluated 3,682 adults over a 10-year period. Even after taking major cardiovascular risk factors such as age, body fat, smoking, blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol into account, married men had a 46% lower rate of death than unmarried men.

    Regards cancer - Prostate cancer is a particular concern for men. To find out how marriage affects survival, scientists from the University of Miami investigated 143,063 men with the disease. Over a 17-year period, married men survived far longer (median 69 months) than separated and widowed patients (38 months); men who had never married had an intermediate survival rate (49 months). And researchers from Harvard and UCLA have identified similar survival benefits for married patients with bladder cancer, a predominantly male disease.

    marriage appears to have a positive effect on a variety of health outcomes. Mental health is the most prominent; married men have a lower risk of depression and a higher likelihood of satisfaction with life in retirement than their unmarried peers. Being married has also been linked to better cognitive function, a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease, improved blood sugar levels, and better outcomes for hospitalized patients.”

    There are signs the gap is closing a little now as men are more likely to be be taking better care of their health.

    It depends what they’re sick with but having allergies or being weak doesn’t mean they’ll die younger. Athletic men are more likely to die younger. Men have a shorter lifespan to begin with an boosting testosterone causes rapid ageing of the heart which can happen anyway beyond a certain age. Testerone puts more stress on the body so going overboard with it can cripple yoI.
