The Truth about a Happy Marriage

In a report from the National Survey of Families and Households, of more than 5,000 couples interviewed, 1,000 said they were “unhappily married.”  Five years later, the same people were interviewed again. Nearly 80 percent of the couples who decided to stick it out and stay together considered themselves “happily married” and “much happier.”  Of the couples who got divorced, less than 20 percent reported being happy.

The moral of the story?  If you’re thinking of getting divorced because you’re simply unhappy, DON’T do it. Studies show you’ll be much happier in the end if you can work through the issues.
