Many women experience happiness after divorce

A recent study has found that women generally experience a big boost to their happiness levels after their divorce is final.

Researchers at London’s Kingston University found that women reported significantly higher levels of happiness for a period of up to five years after their divorce.

Men also reported feeling slightly happier following the end of their marriages, but the increase was much less significant

"In the study we took into account the fact that divorce can sometimes have a negative financial impact on women, but despite that it still makes them much happier than men," explained Professor Yannis Georgellis, Director of the Centre for Research in Employment, Skills and Society (CRESS) at Kingston Business School.

"One possible explanation could be that women who enter into an unhappy marriage feel much more liberated after divorce than their male counterparts," he added.
