Is Marriage Good for your Health?

According to the New York Times, marriage is good for your health. I was trying to recall an article I'd read which stated that the amount of arguing a couple does, is not necessarily reflected in the level of happiness and contentment within the union. Paul laughed and said he wanted to read it. And of course I couldn't find it. But we had both read that you do indeed live longer if you're married.
Paul said, in his infinite wisdom-
It's like this. I can eat red meat and drink beer for the next 60 years.....
eat sprouts for the next 80 years.....
As I sputtered, Paul consoled me with "Don't be upset honey, I'm your Sprout too."
