Why do women live longer, on average, than men? |
It's because men work harder, lead more stressful lives and sacrifice everything for their families. Obviously.:)
Or worse still, it's because many men end up with nagging, ungrateful, money-grabbing women, who bleed them dry while living a life of shopping and pedicures.
Why do married men die before their wives? Because they want to.
But it's a bona fide fact that women live longer than men. According to the Office for National Statistics, a girl born today in the UK will live, on average, nearly five years longer than a boy born at the same time.
The same is true around the globe. In most countries and cultures, women live longer than men. And if you want further evidence that, as men, we're doing something badly wrong, consider this: among people over 100 years old in the industrialised world, 85% are women.
The good news is that the difference in life expectancy between British men and women is actually reducing. Which just goes to show that there's nothing set in stone about it.
