I thought that was crazy at first and didn't believe it, but yah... it is true.
I always thought clinical depression was indiscriminate; why is it marketed towards women then? Probably because the majority of people who get anti-depressants are women.
Funny fact: married men are less likely than single men to suffer from depression, alcoholism and other addictions, to live in poverty, or die of homicide. Married women are more
likely than single women to suffer from depression, alcoholism, to live in poverty, or die of homicide - often at the hands of their husband.
I wonder if that's part of why society pushes so hard the happily ever after / most special day of your life / bridal industrial complex ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ on women. Would we still get married if we had all the facts and none of the dream?
