If you are female and want to be happy, then don't get married!

Yep, behavioral scientist, Paul Dolan did a huge study on marriage and children.  It's out in his new book Happy Ever After.

What did he find?  That the long held idea that marriage is the answer to happiness, might not be the case.

In a MSN Lifestyle on-line interview he says,

"The healthiest and happiest population are women who never married or had children...You earn more money at work, and you live a little longer,"

He added, that,

"As for your calming, un-risky wife? Well, she, on the other hand, has to put up with that, and dies sooner than if she never married."

So, what about men?  Dolan states,

Men tended to benefit from marriage because it reduced "risk-taking" behaviours and "calms them down" a bit...You earn more money at work, and you live a little longer"

So, maybe Beyoncé was wrong, let's NOT put a ring on it!
