Bachelors becoming healthier compared to married couples

But new research shows that bachelors are starting to catch up.

Michigan State University researchers found that single men are a lot healthier than they used to be.

Experts reviewed more than 32 years of data on more than one million Americans ages 25 to 80.

They believe the reason is due to better earning power among bachelors as well as more social support from outside the family.

On the other hand, they found that widowed individuals showed a dramatic decline in health, possibly because they are living longer and spending more time alone.
