It would seem that married people are happier than single people. But according to Paul Dolan, a professor of behavioral science, this is only true “when their spouse is in the room when they’re asked how happy they are. When the spouse is not present: f—ing miserable”. In fact, the opposite is true. Single people, specifically, are happier. This only applies to women, by the way. Men get happier when married.
Paul Dolan summarizes this clearly: “If you’re a man, you should probably get married; if you’re a woman, don’t bother.”
