New Study Unearths the Effects of Marriage

A study into the long-term success of marriages found that the majority of couples who reported being unhappy following the birth of their first child feel fulfilled a decade on, The Telegraph has reported.

Seven in 10 couples report being unhappy when their first child is born, but 68 per cent of those report being happy 10 years later, with 27 per cent saying they were “extremely happy”, giving their relationships a score of seven out of seven.

The study, commissioned by the Marriage Foundation, suggests that couples would do well to work through difficult periods if they want to achieve long term satisfaction.
