How Marriage Helps Us Get Rich

CNN.com reports something extremely interesting: Study Finds That Marriage Builds Wealth.

I find it very telling here that those who commit themselves to marriage get twice as much wealth. Isn’t that the purpose of two becoming one? The article even alludes to such a biblical principle:

David Popenoe, co-director of the National Marriage Project at Rutgers University, said people become more economically productive after they marry.

“They work harder, they advance further in their job, they save more money, and maybe invest more wisely,” Popenoe said. “That’s because, one can speculate, they are now working for something larger than themselves. They are working for a family.”


I really like the prospects of this study for my long-term growth. Tricia is actually going to be a benefit, not a liability as conventional wisdom would say. Conventional wisdom says you don’t need a man or a woman in your life, respectively, to gain wealth. Your significant other will actually drain your wealth, regardless of your earning power. ‘Tis better to be single or divorced. To that I declare, “Hogwash.”

This study went on to say, in no uncertain terms, that “divorce looks like one of the fastest ways to destroy your wealth.” Yet another reason never to get divorced. You’ll go to the poorhouse.

    Remember, correlation does not necessarily denote causation. Perhaps it is only the wealthy who can afford to marry?

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization.

    Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped
    off? I’d truly appreciate it.
