Denmark: Married Gay Men Live Longer, Study Says

Written by scott on March 19th, 2013

Little Mermaid - Copenhagen, DenmarkA new study out of Denmark finds that gay men who are married live longer than unmarried gays. Dot429 reports:

Though mortality rates within the LGBT population were high during the worst of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, since the arrival of effective treatment Danish male/male couples’ mortality has declined to rates lower than that of gay men who are unmarried or single, and even dropped slightly below that of unmarried or divorced straight men. The findings match that of previous studies showing that statistically, married couples live longer, but the Danish study is the first to analyze longevity alongside marital status for a whole country.

So glad we got married. 😛
