37 Year Old Man Dies Within Hours After Marrying
Sorry that this guy has died – but for the purposes of my blog, this is kind of illuminating or amusing – NOT that it’s amusing that he’s dead, mind you (truly, sorry he’s passed away) – but that it so acutely points out the problem with the “marriage will make you happier, safer, and more healthy in life” propaganda my fellow conservatives are always peddling.
Obviously, being married didn’t make this guy any happier or more secure, and it didn’t magically improve his health – he’s deceased now.
Getting married is NOT a fairy tale guarantee that it will give you a “happily ever after” ending.
I have more news stories on my blog that are similar – news reports of other people who were killed moments before, during, or after their wedding. You can see some of those similar stories at the bottom of this post, under “Related.”
