Good odds for Old Married Men
Married is the dominant status of men aged 65 and older with 75 percent of them married. Only 43 percent of females of this age are married. But hang on you say, doesn?t it take two to tango? Well this discrepancy in percentages is explained by there being in total, lots more (286,000 more) numbers of women than men age 65 or over because of the greater longevity of women.
For unattached men 65 and over there are 2.4 unattached women for every man (1.8 in the 65 to 74 age range and 2.9 above 74). It?s enough to make fit older single men find a way to live longer.
