On a recent post, blog reader Don commented:
I once asked a question about the absurdity of women expecting their husbands to pay for a life time of her expenses just because they love them by forcing ideals of marriage. I got similar responses from Feminists. One even suggested that men live longer in marriages. Like that is going to offset the loss of money due to paying her expenses for a lifetime.
I have highlighted an interesting statement.
Unfortunately, the average person has a rather poor understanding of causation and correlation. I’m curious what my readers think. So, think about why the statement in bold letters may be wrong. In case it isn’t completely obvious: the implication is that men live longer because they are married. Just based on logic alone, this is a dubious statement without further supporting information. Can you figure out why?
