Adventures in Divorce

I always wondered why people who murdered their spouses didn't just get a divorce.... I now understand why

No, I'm not a prophetess. Cassandra, according to Greek mythology, spurned the advances of the Greek god Apollo and her gift of prophecy was cursed so that her predictions would never be believed. Such is my life. I tend not to think like most people, which is a gift... but also a curse. So step into my mind, take off your shoes and stay for awhile... you're always welcome, loved ones.

The secret to long life

According to some woman who is turning 110 today, her secret to long life was not getting married. Years ago I met a 90-something year old woman who said the same thing.

Isn't there data that marriage increases life span true for both men AND women? I may have to research that one......

Ok, after a quick Google search, here's what I found:

"Australian researchers have found that marriage may add almost a year to a man's life, but it does little to boost the lifespan of women. A study of about 3,000 elderly men and women since 1988 found married men lived on average 11 months longer than their single counterparts."

DAMMIT!! Once again, the deck is stacked in favor of men......
