While many people think that married couples enjoy greater financial benefits than cohabitating couples or men and women living alone, a new study from the Pew Research Center suggests the opposite.

"When we started writing this report, we thought that people who were married, and not those just living with each other, would be better off. But that's not the case," D'Vera Cohn, the study's co-author, told CNN.

Megan and Tim were journalists at The Virgin Islands Daily Times when they began dating and fell in love. When the time came to tie the knot, the couple decided to deck out their wedding in black & white. "We knew that it had to pay homage to newspapers as much as possible," Megan says.

From the press release invitations with typewriter font to the young newsies yelling "Extra, extra, read all about it!" as they passed out programs, they certainly stuck with the theme!

Fellows, if your wife tosses and turns at night you may be in for a few fights. According to a new study, women who suffer from insomnia tend to have more negative interactions with their spouse and this often means trouble for a couple’s marriage.

“Sleep disturbance and deprivation has profound effects on mood, irritability, and frustration tolerance,” said the study’s lead author, Wendy Troxel, an assistant professor of psychiatry and psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. “And the person you’re most likely to take it out on is not your boss or some random person, but your spouse.”

While one might think a hectic job would put strain on a marriage, a new study has found that working women are actually happier with their marriages when they are shouldering heavy loads at work. 

So what is it about a busy job that makes working moms happier? Researchers think the answer may be as simple as men help out more around the house when their wives are busy. A hectic job “may liberate wives from some of the burdens of juggling the two worlds of work and family life, increasing their satisfaction with the marriage,” says the study by researchers at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and the University of California, Los Angeles. The four-year study of 169 couples was recently published in the Journal of Family Psychology.

Census reports later marriage, more long-lasting marriages

Newly-released census data has shown that among people in their late 20s, a higher proportion of people have never been married. In 1986, the first year that marriage data was collected by the Census, 73% of people between the ages of 25 and 29 had been married at some point. As of 2009, however, that number is 53%.

The reasons are easy to identify: many people are choosing to get married later on in life, and society is more accepting these days of couples living together without being married.

We’ve all heard of men who divorce one wife only to marry a woman who is ten, twenty, or even thirty years younger than their first. Donald Trump, Hugh Hefner, and Brad Pitt have all “traded younger,” so to speak. However, a recent spate of celebrity men who have done the opposite, “traded older,” has people like Forbe's Kiri Blakeley wondering if young trophy wives are beginning to lose their luster. 

So why are some celebrity men trading older?

According to a recent study in Canada, many married couples today are bored with wedded life and this boredom threatens the success of their relationship.

"If a close relationships researcher were to approach people on the street and ask, “What is the major obstacle to lasting love?”, we suspect that the most frequent answers would be “conflict”, “betrayal”, “selfishness” and the like,” said researcher Beverley Fehr of the University of Winnipeg in Canada. “We would be quite surprised if anyone replied “boredom” and yet that may be the correct answer.”
