While more and more people are choosing to live independently and not take up the responsibilities that marriage entails, researchers have found new evidence on the benefits of married life. A study suggests that women who are married tend to be safer in terms of suffering partner abuse or substance abuse. Also, married women are apparently less likely to suffer post-postpartum depression around the time of pregnancy compared to those who live with a partner. The study revealed that unmarried women who lived with a partner for less than two years were more likely to experience at least one of the three problems. However, the occurrence of these problems apparently came down as the time period of staying together with the partner increased.
