Women Happier After Their Divorce Concludes Research Study

Research undertaken by Kingston University in London has found that women become much more happy and satisfied with their lives after their divorce.

The study published in the journal Economica showed that women are significantly more content than usual for up to five years following their divorce, even more so than their own average level of happiness throughout their lives.

The study surveyed 10 000 people in the UK between the ages of 16 and 60. The participants were asked to rate their happiness after major milestones in their lives.  Men also felt happier after their divorce but the increase was not so marked.

The Director of the study Professor Yannis Georgellis commented "One possible explanation could be that women who enter into an unhappy marriage feel much more liberated after divorce than their male counterparts".
