While the phrase "ball and chain" is still sometimes tossed around by those who view marriage as a burden, a recent study shows that men who tie the knot reap a plethora of benefits.
"Indeed, the benefits of marriage for men are substantial by every conceivable measure, including money, a better sex life, and significantly better physical and mental health," noted a recent study released by the Institute for Family Studies.
"There's no doubt that marriage requires sacrifices… but it turns out that these sacrifices pay for themselves and more."
The study, titled "Man & Marriage: Debunking the Ball and Chain Myth," was authored by researchers W. Bradford Wilcox and Nicholas H. Wolfinger.
