For those guys who would probably remain single and not marry a woman, financially they and their bud could do much better married especially if one of them dies and cares about their best friend.

Social Security will allow the survivor to choose to draw from the deceased mate’s benefits. This could be a benefit to the survivor who if the deceased mate made more money than they have, they would receive bigger benefits.

I expect we will see a lot more straight married dudes in the future.
