A new study by Canadian researchers finds that married men have better health than single men.

They credit wives who remind or nag their husbands about keeping their doctor appointments. Researchers also said that on average married heart attack victims arrive at the hospital half an hour sooner than those who are not married. Another health bonus for married men -- women tend to check with their doctors for medical advice on their husbands behalf.
