KARACHI: A 105-year-old retired nurse Brenda Osborne from Nottingham, England, may have found the answer to the age-old question: how can we live longer? Osborne thinks it is by staying single.

Born in 1913, Osborne spent 93 years of her life in her childhood home before moving into a nursing home, reported Metro News. During her life, she has witnessed two World Wars, the crowning of three monarchs and England’s FIFA win in 1966.

“I would put my good health down to hard work and avoiding men,” said Osborne. And those, ladies and gentlemen, are words to live by.

In light of this, we try to breakdown how being single can add some extra years to your life.

1. You can focus less on keeping the other person happy and more on your own happiness

That’s ought to be good for your health, isn’t it?

2. You can stop worrying about flu season

There won’t be any back on forth and giving and taking of germs. YAY!

3. You can shower and take a dump whenever you want

There won’t be anyone hogging the toilet so your bladder and bowel can function properly

4. No unnecessary nagging from the in-laws 

Peace of mind amounts to everything

5. You can avoid overeating

One of the worst parts of being married or in a relationship is that eating becomes an activity you do together. Dates are about eating, movies are about eating. You get the drill?

6. You won’t have to worry about changing your schedule to fit the other person’s

Less stress, yeah?

7. You can spend more time working and earning

Because that’s at least getting you money and medical insurance. What’s marriage getting you? Unless it’s a sugar daddy situation.

Well the downside is you won’t have anyone to cuddle with after a bad day but who cares? What are pets for?
