Single Women are the Happiest, Expert Says

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.”

This seems true. Female hypergamy would support this.
A for myself, every dimension of my life is better because of my marriage.
