It gets harder and harder to guess the actual age of some unique people who seem never to grow older. They age like fine wine, only getting richer and invaluable. You may wonder, is it a result of good genes, or is there more to it?
Scientists confirm that those in happy relationships are healthier physically, mentally, and emotionally. Even as they grow older, they tend to be healthier than their age mates.
