Is Marriage the Cure for Cancer?

    Well, the traditional view is that God created woman to be a mate with man. That is, neither a man nor a woman is truly complete without the other.

    And all the stats show that married couples do better economically and health wise than single people.

    Furthermore, single people — especially women — tend to favor empowering the almighty state over small government.

    I think it depends on the helpmate relationship. People suffering from a potentially life-threatening disease like cancer, but not just cancer, need emotional support of varying degrees. If the marriage is healthy, then the support exists. If the marriage is not healthy, the rate of survival is probably more like that of single people. I am one of the lucky singles. 13 years in remission.

    It’s too bad Obamacare penalized married couples over a certain income. But the Left’s been trying to get rid of marriage for a very long time.
