“Marriage may reduce dementia risk, researchers find,” by Michael Chan, ABC News
“Combining data from 15 studies — which looked at more than 812,000 people from around the world — researchers in the U.K. compared people who were divorced, widowed or never married with people who were married. Their results showed that, compared with married people, widowed people had a 20 percent higher risk of developing dementia, and those who never married had a 42 percent increased risk, after adjusting for age- and sex-related risk factors.”

But just in case, make sure you get LTC insurance into the pre-nup.
