New Study Suggests Marriage and Children Make You Happy. No Way!

I just read a study that says having children makes for a happy marriage. The study, from the Journal of Happiness Studies (hard to take you seriously with a name like that) found that married couples find greater happiness by having a child. In fact, the more children you have the happier you become (The Duggars must eat sunshine and crap rainbows).

For the unmarried couples, I'm sorry to say that this report suggests that having kids doesn't boost your happiness. So head to Vegas and tie the knot quick!

Dr. Luis Angeles, professor at Glasgow University in Scotland and author of the study stated that “one is tempted to advance that children make people better off under the 'right conditions' – a time in life when people feel they are ready or at least willing, to enter parenthood.

So you're saying that if I want children, I'm ready for children and then I have a children (sic), I will be happy. But if I don't want children and I'm not ready for children but have children anyways, I may not be as happy? Brilliant.

I recently published my own report that says the Journal of Happiness is just as silly as their name implies.
