Marriage can save the WORLD!

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

According to the news lately, Marriage can save your life and the environment. There have been numerous reports on how getting a divorce is not only hard on the person, but also takes it's toll on the environment. I just copied and pasted a portion of a report from my yahoo homepage because I think they said it perfectly. "Households with fewer people are simply not as efficient as those with more people sharing, he explained. A household uses the same amount of heat or air conditioning whether there are two or four people living there. A refrigerator used the same power whether there is one person home or several. Two people living apart run two dishwashers, instead of just one.Per person, divorced households spent more per person per month for electricity compared with a married household, as multiple people can be watching the same television, listening to the same radio, cooking on the same stove and or eating under the same lights. That means some $6.9 billion in extra utility costs per year, Liu calculated, plus an added $3.6 billion for water, in addition to other costs such as land use." You can read the full report here. Then, I watched a video about this guy who was being robbed at gunpoint, and when the gunman went to shoot, the man put his hand over his head and the mans wedding ring took most of the impact from the bullet and saved the mans life! Holy cow that is awesome! For all the people that say marriage isn't for them...they might want to reconsider, lol.
