We're here to share a really interesting celeb scoop. At age 62, Bono has discovered the key to good health and longevity: a successful marriage lasting 40 years.

According to the Census Bureau, the number of couples living together increased dramatically over the course of 20 years, rising from six million to a staggering 17 million. After all, it's been claimed that unless you live with, you can't really get to know someone.
