A sociology teacher I had once said studies show that statistically people in order of happinessness goes : Married men, single women, single men, married women. Married men being the happiest. Married women being last... meaning the least happy. Why do you think this is?

I guess married women have been fooled into thinking they can have it all. They want a successful career, Prince Charming, and happy kids. They're aiming for unrealistic standards and realizing how futile it is

I think one reason married men are so happy is because their moms have finally stopped nagging them to "settle down". Maybe married woman are least happy because they gave up their careers to have children? idk just speculation.

Really? I've yet to meet a married man that is happier than a single man.

Best Answer

I was surprised too. Second happiest were single women, and out of all the single women I know it seems like they are all chasing after men. But I guess our small pools don't represent everybody.

Best Answer

True say. Though pursuing the opposite gender seems to just be the status quo for single 20-somethings, not necessarily a sign of dissatisfaction.
