Looking for a reason to stay married? Here it is. These pro-marriage research findings are all in one document. I found it interesting that over five studies "analyzing different populations find that married men

(especially married fathers) have lower testosterone levels than do
similar men who never-married or divorced." Of note, co-habitating men had the same results. Apparently being near a woman lowers testosterone.
