Married women at least 4 times less likely to be victim of violence than never married women, and 30 times less likely than separated women. Marriage also reduces violence against men. Single men are also much more likely to commit violent crimes. Health benefits of living in a family Statistical advantages of marriage Marriage in Bible In early Israel, expected to marry within the clan – ideal was to marry first cousin. (Jacob goes to Laban to get Rachel & Leah) Actual wedding was a week long celebration (Fiddler on the roof) – bride taken to groom’s house. Procreation was basic to marriage – no children was lamented; concubine or second wife usually because of barrenness (lack of kids assumed to be woman’s fault). Women tended to get married between 13 & 18. (at or before puberty – Koteskey) Marriage of virgins on Wednesday – if no evidence of virginity, husband goes to court on Thursday. Widows married on Thursday.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
