BALTIMORE - We've heard married people are happier, but that might not be a reason to rush to the altar according to a new study.
According to U.S. experts who analyzed data from the National Survey of Families and Households, in terms of health, self-esteem and psychological well-being, marriage offers little benefit over simply living together without wedding rings.
It's the relationship itself, rather than its official status, that's key to its benefits.
This may be because cohabitation offers more room for independence and personal growth.
