Tired of getting asked by relatives and friends about when do you plan to get married and have your own kids? Well, we’ve got you covered with that.

The next time they bug you again, you can at least try to quote this recent research conducted by the Coimbra University in Portugal.

Rejoice, late bloomer mothers! You’ll probably live longer, researchers claim.

According to their study, older women, particularly those who are already in their 30s when they start having babies, may live much longer compared with those who bear children earlier.

Metro tells us that the researchers did a comparison regarding the “life expectancies of mothers in European countries at 65 to the age they were when they started having kids.”

The study discovered:

“The most relevant result shows that women tend to live longer the older they are when they get pregnant (in particular, for the first child).”

Furthermore, we are also told:

“There are several determinant factors of women’s life expectancy. The most surprising factor is the age of women at pregnancy, which may provide evidence to promote pregnancy in the early 30’s.”

But wait… There’s more!

Meanwhile, a separate study published in the Menopause journal specifically pointed out that women “who have kids aged 33 and above are more likely to be genetically predisposed to longevity” than younger mothers, Metro wrote.

Despite these findings, both studies did not provide further details about the reasons behind the pattern.

Could it be possible that mothers in their 30s experience lesser stress because they are already financially-stable?

While we cannot pinpoint for sure, at least you have this information ready in case you need to slap – or I mean answer – someone the next time you get asked again.

Who knows? This just might be enough to shut them down, right? Right!

16-Year-Old Boy Dies After Drinking 90% Pure Liquid Meth At US Border

Somehow, both seems to be at fault here.

A new surveillance footage has been released recently that might shed light on the tragic death of a 16-year-old Mexican boy at the U.S. border several years ago. In the video obtained by ABC News, two border officers can be seen questioning high school student Cruz Velazquez. The student was entering the U.S. at the San Ysidro Port of Entry when he was stopped by the US Customs and Border Protection Agency. Apparently, Velasquez was carrying two suspicious bottles containing yellowish liquid, which he claimed to be apple juice.

After a few minutes, the border officers encouraged Velasquez to drink the liquid to prove that it was just an apple juice. Hesitant, the young boy proceeded and took small mouthfuls of the highly-toxic drug.

A Mexican teenager was allegedly forced to drink liquid methamphetamine.

Jealous 16-Year-Old Boy Locks Up 71-Year-Old Wife to Prevent Other Men From Taking Her

The 16-year-old boy is so emotionally attached to his elderly wife that he has even neglected his religious obligations.

Although people like to say "age is nothing but a number," age remains a crucial factor when it comes to relationships. This is especially true when one or both people in the relationship are still minors. It gets even more complicated when one person is a minor while the other is already a senior citizen. This is the case with a married Indonesian couple — a 16-year-old boy and a 71-year-old woman.

For the most part, people have commented on the vast difference in the degree of maturity of the teenage boy named Selamet and his elderly wife Rohaya. However, the couple say that their marriage is going strong.

Their families have been forced to accept their union.
