How to Convince Your Rich Older Man to Put a Ring on It

If you’ve been dat­ing a sugar daddy and you’re hop­ing he’ll make the May-December rela­tion­ship offi­cial with a ring, this bit of use­ful infor­ma­tion might help to speed up the process. There’s a wealth of sci­en­tific research to prove that your sugar daddy can actu­ally live a longer life if he makes you his wife. Com­pared to sin­gle men, mar­ried men are usu­ally health­ier, both phys­i­cally and men­tally, and there­fore tend to have a longer life expectancy.

For starters, a Har­vard Uni­ver­sity study found a sig­nif­i­cant increase in the detec­tion of var­i­ous forms of can­cer among mar­ried peo­ple, and mar­ried patients were much more likely to sur­vive a can­cer diagnosis.

The same thing goes for your sugar daddy’s risk of heart dis­ease, which is still the lead­ing cause of death among Amer­i­can men. A study pub­lished in the jour­nal Psy­cho­so­matic Med­i­cine found that mar­riage reduced a man’s risk of dying from heart dis­ease by almost half (46%), com­pared to sin­gle men—and this held true even after tak­ing into account other risk fac­tors like smok­ing, weight, and blood pressure.

Mar­riage is also proven to ben­e­fit your sugar daddy from a men­tal stand­point, because stud­ies have shown that mar­ried folks are gen­er­ally hap­pier and less stressed than their sin­gle counterparts—and it’s known that stress can sig­nif­i­cantly under­mine his men­tal health, which will wind up impact­ing his phys­i­cal health, too.

And it’s known that men, no mat­ter how inde­pen­dent and mature they are, rely more on emo­tional sup­port from their spouse. Unlike women who turn to their friends for sup­port, men are more likely to turn to their wife after a bad day, and hav­ing that shoul­der to lean on will fur­ther ben­e­fit his men­tal health.

Then there’s the fact that as his wife, you’re more likely to keep tabs on your sugar daddy’s health, whether it’s by encour­ag­ing doc­tor vis­its or push­ing him to stick to a healthy diet. Fur­ther­more, wives are more likely to dis­cour­age risky behav­ior, like smok­ing. All of this will inad­ver­tently add years to his life.

Before rush­ing to push your sugar daddy into pop­ping the ques­tion, it’s impor­tant that you first make sure that your May-December rela­tion­ship is solid before. If you and your sugar daddy rush into mar­riage with­out the foun­da­tion of a healthy rela­tion­ship, you’ll actu­ally be under­min­ing the many health ben­e­fits, not just for him, but for you, too.

What do you think: Do you agree that mar­riage can help your sugar daddy live longer?

About Vivian

I am 26 and my husband 45. At first, our friendship existed mostly online. I was actually helping my now husband with his dating profile when it dawned on me that he was exactly what I was looking for in a perfect life partner. So, I asked him out and we have been together ever since. We now have two daughters together and everyone that knows us will tell you that they simply can’t imagine us apart, and neither can we. I’m no stranger to May-December relationships—my father was 71 and my mother was 33 when I was born. I have never dated a guy my own age. Anything less than 10 years older than me just seems wrong, and frankly, it doesn’t even turn me on in the slightest bit to think about it. It’s actually a turn-off. After going through relationships with a few rich older men, I finally settled down with my husband. I’m sure there were people waging bets on how quickly our marriage would fall apart, but we’re determined to prove them all wrong.
