Apparently, the way this went down is that Paul Dolan, a behavioral science professor at the London School of Economics, analyzed data from the American Time Use Survey and determined that unmarried women who never have children are the most content and outlive their married counterparts — guess the fact that women tend to outlive men makes them “healthier.”

There is a catch, though — married couples say they’re happy … if the spouse is within earshot. The New York Post reports:
Married men take fewer risks and “calm down” and therefore are healthier than their single counterparts, whereas women did not see the same benefits. Women’s health was mainly unaffected by marriage, but middle-aged married women reported more mental and physical problems than single ones.
“You take less risks, you earn more money at work, and you live a little longer. She, on the other hand, has to put up with that, and she dies sooner than if she never married. The healthiest and happiest population subgroup are women who never married or had children,” Dolan said.

I would bet cash money this turns out to be untrue like everything else any feminist has ever said during the entire history of always. https://t.co/Xd4C8URg9J

I am sure they will be super happy in the elder years when they are in their one bedroom apartment surrounded by empty boxes of wine and a dozen cats, so glad that they don't have a husband or family for companionship. pic.twitter.com/XZUG75yCim

I would wager the standard deviation is off the charts. A good marriage will absolutely make you happier than dying alone being eaten by cats ever could. A bad marriage can make you wish you were dead. It takes work.

This sham article was pumped out because other studies more accurately reveal religious & married people are far healthier, happier & when children come along, we really realize they're like the cherries on top. But keep telling yourself this if it makes you feel better.
