Married Men

So last night I subjected myself to the usual aggregation of irrelevant factoids that are local news.

One such factoid caught my attention as Hal Fishman and his co-anchor "reported" about surveys involving Married Men, in which the following was found:

  1. 70% are happier while being married.
  2. 94% are more satisfied with their intimate life than they were when they were single


I'll indulge my cynical side here and wonder (as "She Bangs" by William Hung is playing on iTunes, not sure why I'm mentioning this, but i felt compelled to) how many of the men surveyed answered the first question with their wife standing right beside them, painstakingly drew an "X" in the "Happier" box while discretely pouring a tear over the "Please, OH DEAR GOD PLEASE SHOOT ME" box. As far as the second question goes, I must have misheard it, but I'm pretty-sure they did say single. Well yeah, I guess, those warm and soft female creatures we also know as Women sure beat the rough, rugged, callous, extremities our faithful "Rosie and her Five Little Friends" are made of. There's hope though.

here's another fun one:
~ 70% of the male population do not kiss their wives goodbye when they leave their houses.

it is also said that love is blind, but marriage opens your eyes.
