In England - as in many other countries - women outlive their husbands by several yeara

Given that women often marry men older than thems selves - this could mean women having an extra 20 years or more life than their husbands

I think these blissfully peaceful later years are a reward from God for having to put up with a lazy useless man for most of their lives :D


In evolutionary terms women should be able to live longer because their job is to give birth to new generation. Giving birth is a heavy job, which needs a stronger body to tolerate difficulties like diseases. So women must have stronger resistance against diseases, this consequently leads to a longer life.

Another odd fact is that mariage makes men living older than bachelors, while it changes nothing to women's longevity.
