Your Health: January 17, 2014 Happy with or without kids

Posted: Updated:
Birmingham, AL -


   Are people happier with... or without children?
  Researchers revisited the argument that couples "with" children are happier than couples without children.
  Researchers at Princeton and Stony Brook Universities found there's very little difference in the satisfaction levels of people who choose to have children and those who do not.
    Both groups seem to be equally happy.
Researchers say once income, education, religion and health are factored out, there's little difference in happiness between the two groups.
    However, the one difference researchers found: on a daily basis, parents appear to have more joy in their lives, but also have more stress and negative emotions.
