107 Year Old Woman Says The Secret To Long Life Is Never Getting Married

(Source)A woman who celebrated her 107th birthday Wednesday shared her secret to living a long life: stay single.

Louise Signore, who lives in the Bronx in New York, maintains a healthy diet and exercises regularly. But she believes the real reason why she’s enjoyed more than a century is because she never tied the knot.

“If they have exercise, I do the exercise. If they have dancing, I dance. I still a do a little dancing. After my lunch, I will play bingo, so I had a full day,” Signore told CNN affiliate WCBS.

“I think the secret of 107: I never got married. I think that’s the secret. My sister says, ‘I wish I never got married.’”

The woman’s sister is 102-years-old, WCBS reported, so longevity might run in the family.

Stories like this are as common as tweets saying “FOOTBALL IS BACK,” everyone has them. Whenever someone hits the centennial mark there’s a microphone in their face asking how they did it. Almost 100% of the time it’s something wildly unhealthy and goes viral, I can’t imagine the rush a local news reporter gets when the blue hair tells them that a glass of whiskey, a pack of cigarettes, and two heroin injections is what got them to triple digits.

But this one? It makes sense. Granted they kinda bury the lede with the whole “sister who’s 102″ thing, clearly showing it’s genetics that got them to this age, but still not getting married makes sense. We were talking about it on KFC Radio just the other day.

I have the easiest life in the world. I don’t have a wife, I don’t have kids, I do whatever I want and I do it whenever I want. If I think spending money on something is silly then I don’t do it, if I think it’s silly but I want to do it then I do it. There are zero outside factors in my life that stress me out and put strain on my heart. Sure, I have mental issues and all that but I’m a millennial and we’ve all got those, that just came with being born when I was. 80s babies came out of the womb got a smack in the face, a birth certificate, and a healthy dose of anxiety and depression. But everything else is cake if you’re single.

Now, do you want to live until you’re 107? No. That’s part of the mental illness birthright. But would staying unmarried get you there? I’m sure it doesn’t hurt.

Also, this chick is like 4’2″ and I’d say that’s a more important factor. She doesn’t need all the resources a bigger person needs so she lives longer. That’s science.
