     (With all the talk of marriage becoming obsolete, the following article from House to House/Heart to Heart needs to be read by all.  By the way, HTH/HTH is on our website.  Check it out.)
     Forget the popular image of the married couple driving each other nuts.  “Studies show that getting married improves mental health and decreases depression,” says Linda Waite, a sociologist at the University of Chicago .  In fact, one study found that people who never walked down the aisle are more likely to be admitted to a psychiatric facility. The intimacy found in marriage bolsters your self-worth and sense of purpose, which actually enhances mental stability.
     “Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing.” –Proverbs 18:22
