If you are a man, here is a tip to live longer – marry a smart woman.

A study done at Stockholm University has proven that women have known throughout the ages that men are hopeless at taking care of themselves. Data has shown that the best predictor of a long life for a man was the level of his wife’s education and not the man’s education.

It was already a proven that man will live longer with any woman at his side. Married men live longer than single men.

There are lots of jokes implying shortening of lifespan for married man but obviously the facts prove otherwise.

“A classified ad which read "Wife Wanted" received hundreds of responses, all from men saying "You can have mine."

On further thought the studies do make sense, maybe. Marrying a smart woman increases life span probably because marrying someone less smart may give you headache and stress, and this is not good for life expectancy. I don't know for sure, I am only assuming.

    I don’t think research has been done on the relationship between eating beetroot cookies and life expectancy, lets wait for research to come. Beetroot could be the answer too, beetroot is good for you after all:)

    ping: I don’t know whether I should say it was planned or not, whatever makes me seem smarter. I need to keep up too:)
    I didn’t see the original research but it was done on historical statistics so the results should be objective (unless the data was mined pretty well).
    That wasn’t a dumb joke, it’s a fact:) Kidding! Yes a men must be behind this one, that’s the best they can do:)

    Lizzy: good, now he knows. I am sure he knew already but no harm re-emphasizing this point.
