ABSTRACT
The article reports on an Ohio State University study published in the January 2006 "Journal of Sociology" that reveals that people who marry accumulate twice as much personal wealth per person as someone who remains single or divorced. The major reasons are savings in housing costs and that individuals tend to work harder when in a marriage. Additionally, divorce erodes three-quarters of a person's personal net worth. The study tracked participants who have been part of the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth since 1979.
