It is not clear why men behave better when married, the article from Fox News website stated. But part of this understanding has to do with the fact that men who are married tend to be trained to improve their behavior, or simply because nicer men are more likely to get married anyways. The study also showed that 60% of men who married between the ages of 17-20 showed less of a chance of showing antisocial behavior, whereas men at the age of 29 who were unmarried were found to have an average of 1.3% chance of antisocial behavior compared to the 0.8 percent of married men. Perhaps the change this men underwent is due to spending more time with their family and spouses, meaning they have to develop some type of social skills to deal with different personalities in their family. In an era of easy divorces and the lack of commitment, I'm always glad to read articles that state the benefits of marriage.
Several studies have stated that people who are married tend to live longer and happier. Not only happier, but more sociable.
It seems that science has met one of God's plans for man and woman: marriage. Several of verses in the Bible state the fact that is part of God's plan, since the beginning (see Genesis 2:24-25), for men and women to be unitied in holy matrimony. I can only hope more studies in marriage will bring to light more beneficial facts about marriage.
