I never expected to double over with laughter over something out of the "Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health," but, damn, this is funny: According to a recent study, couples who have children live longer, healthier -- and this is the kicker -- more sane lives than couples who remain childless. AHAHAHAHA!!! Oh, come on. If you're not cracking up right now, you don't have kids. Because every parent knows that the stress of raising children takes years off your life instead of adding more. More grey hairs, perhaps, but more years? AHAHAHAHA!!
Okay, maybe I'm being a touch over-cynical here. The numbers are pretty crazy, after all: According to researchers, childless men were twice as likely to die a premature death than fathers; childless women were up to four times more likely to die young than mothers! Yikes!
