Women Outlive Men

Women outlive men by a half-decade. Offer some explanations for this.


This takes a lot of words to explain this. My great grandma lived to be 97 years old. She outlived my great grandpa by a couple of decades. She was born in 1920. Her husband died even before I was born, and I am 10. She died last year in spring. My Nana also thinks that she is going to outlive my grandpa by three decades. My grandpa,however, thinks he is going to outlive her. My mom knows and thinks that she is going to outlive my dad by five decades.
