Yeah, to kill us off earlier.
But this study is logical, and tracts with earlier studies, that compared people living alone versus those living with a companion, independent of specifically studying gay partners.
There's a saying that 2 can live as cheaply as 1, but it's also true than 2 can live longer than 1. Shit happens, and a single person may not be able to handle a medical crisis, or a home accident, all by themselves. Plus the mere cumulative stress of daily living is easier when shared with another, than all by oneself.
This is so self-evident that I wonder we need a study to confirm what we should already instinctively know. But I suppose the scientific method requires it be established without doubt. And so I'm glad this study was done.
