A Finnish study over seven year of nearly 3,500 mean and women between the ages of 30 to 65 shows that people who lived alone were more likely than their peers who live with a partner to take anti-depressants.  In raw figures, 25% of those who live alone used such drugs while only 16% of those who lived with spouses, family, or roommates.  Ecclesiastes was right: “Two are better than one for if one should fall, the other can pick him up.”
