How I Stay Happily Married To A Man With Anxiety

A few weeks ago, as I went through the mail, my heart dropped to my feet. I received a letter from the IRS. It wasn't anything critical but I still considered hiding the letter from my husband.

I have sat through hours of Batman, Ironman, the Flash, Superman, Spiderman, and most recently Daredevil. I am at a loss to say the least. Don't get me wrong, I like a good action flick as much as the next guy, but I just don't get superheroes.

For years, scientists have been saying it is better for your health to be married than it is to be single. And now, researchers at University College in London say that statement is especially true for men.
According to UCL's study — which was published in the American Journal of Public Health — unmarried men are more likely to experience heart and other health problems compared to married men. Illness rates remain unchanged for both single and married women.
