New Study Concludes That Single Ladies Are Happier Than Married Women..

A new study by researchers in Italy have revealed that single women are more healthier and happier than married women. 



The Lead researcher Caterina Trevisan at the University of Padua in Italy said that the study shows that as Italian widows age they have better lives than wives.

According to the research published on the study revealed further that widows suffer less stress and physical frailty than women whose husbands are still alive.

Caterina Trevisan at the University of Padua in Italy said the presence of a husband made women “more likely to feel stressed and find their role restrictive and frustrating”.

She added: “Since women generally have a longer lifespan than men, married women may also suffer from the effects of caregiver burden, since they often devote themselves to caring for their husband in later life.”

Dr Trevisan also pointed out there’s a lower risk of depression in
unmarried women. Single women also have less anxiety, greater
job satisfaction and higher activity levels at work. They also maintained stronger relationships with family or friends.


The research also showed that widows cope better than widowers with the stress deriving from the loss of a partner and widowhood.

On the other hand, women who remain married and got older,
“often have an assistance role towards their husbands” and this
can be wearing. Losing their husbands relieves them of this “burden” which puts them in better condition than their married peers.

Elderly spinsters were also more physically robust and less likely
to suffer weight loss and exhaustion than women who were married.

    2. Someone will just come up with one fallacious writeup. What has the marital status got to do with someone's happiness. You can be unhappy being married likewise being single. Seems like some people are funding the gradual extinction of marriage

    1. your husband is feeding you so you can talk. wait until some married women tell you their stories and yes I want to get married but not as a dependant housewife like we hv all over the place.

    2. Lol. Na una dey make them depressed. And that's because the mumu singles listen to the bull crap some of y'all say. Time counters putting people under unnecessary pressure.

      My own is, if you see a happily married woman you know. She's not bothered about your single status, how you spend your time or money, she's not even worried about when you will or will not get married. She's too into her life to be looking at what's going on in yours and playing judge Judy.
      But the sad depressed ones will be looking at your own life because they don't want to accept that the only thing they can dangle in your face is a ring. Abeg it's easy to spot happily married women. Very very easy. And as a single girl, i advice my fellow bachelorettes to be careful when making friends with married women. If your married friend is holding clock and looking at you, better avoid her. She's a closeted sadist and doesn't have anything to look forward to in her own life that's why she has time to be nosy on yours. I will have a good husband, children screaming day and night, a career to build and inlaws to deal with. Then I'd still be looking at what chikito is or isn't doing? Like really? When they're more important things to worry about like: price of foodstuff, how to give my husband serious knacks tonight, help the children with homework or build me a posh house. Mscheew

  17. The research is wrong.
    I love my privacy, I love the freedom that comes with being single but it gets to a point,I start feeling lonely, wanting companionship and friendship with the opposite sex, I'm not even talking about the sexual aspect.

    If single women are really happy being single, why do we have many single sisters going to church to pray specifically for husband, why are women falling 'mugu' once they hear marriage.

    Women that are not happy are the ones that got married to bad men.

    1. Being single has a time frame one will enjoy it. When it gets to the stage where all your age mates are married with children, it is no more interesting.

  19. I'm much happier being married. That is if you are married to the right man. There's nothing like coming home to someone you love. Someone that always has your back.
    Though I miss the times when I was single when during weekend I can just sleep without home responsibilities. No cooking,taking care of family etc.
    Combining career and home duties no be here. But you feel fulfilled at the end of the day. Very tired, but happy and fulfilled.
    Any situation you find yourself just be happy. Married/single it doesn't matter, that's my take.

Attimes I tell my friends how I wish marriage is not overrated in naija,d tot of staying with one guy for d rest of my life scares the shit outta me. But they said,'if u can't beat them u join them'.

  24. Why do people have great penchant for mischief, deceit and ungodliness. This article is misleading. The title talks about single ladies while the entire write up is littered with widows. Bi where did it mention single women. Widows are women who were married but later lost their husbands while single women are those who were never married in their lives and those married but separated from their husbands who ate still alive. We all know why women become more healthy and robust once their husbands die while they are still young or their children grown at the death of their husbands, but this I don't get it. I consider this article/research useless is because the only thing it can achieve is to encourage married women to hasten the death if their husbands one way or the other in order to be rewarded with s happier and healthier life. If the article were about single women as described above I would have seen it as a call on women to avoid marriage in order to become happier and healthier which doesn't affect any man but seeking happiness and health at the expence of a man by becoming a widow one way or another is a no - no

  31. Happiness is based on what you have achieved, gotten etc.WHILE Joy is a fruit of the Spirit.
    Nevertheless, both are a product of choice.
    That's to say, whether married or single, the option of being happy or joyful is entirely yours. Inasmuch as I love my husband dearly, he's still human and can get me angry, my response to his attitude, is what will make me happy or sad.

  34. It's bullshit. It's a known fact that married women especially with children live healthier and longer lives and are more satisfied. They may have bouts of depression but it's the same for single people or slightly worse for the due tknmany facing loneliness. Those with children married or not are usually more productive at work because they are good at multitasking. A study came out about this last week in the UK.

    7. But on a more serious note, what this anonymous guy said is true. I've met at least 20girls on SnM, but for one, none was more than 30yrs. Infact, one was even 22! Funny enough, most of them sounded desperate. The only one in her 30s was more calm and less desperate! We need to watch the things we say. Many of these ladies in their 30s aren't as desperate as people assume. And before you come for me, I haven't slept with any. I have rejected sexual overtures from some too. I'm being very careful. It isn't just about the sex, it is about finding the right girl to spend the rest of your life with.

Especially when they reach that pick in their life when they feel they are supposed to be in their husband's house.

  40. Maybe because single ladies are free to explore and enjoy their singleness without thinking of family and kids responsibilities I will say YES bcx wen u are married,u hardly have time for yourself especially when u are working mum who's gat alot of targets to meet at work ,kids,husband,family,inlaws,etc


    If not,i would have said no

  44. I dont know why i agree with this study. I have known loneliness sometimes while single particularly because you think you are laggibg behind your mates. But i tell you, i was way happy as a single than i am now. I have husband, kids and luxury i couldnt have as a single but i was way happier as a single girl. So i think they are right in a way.

  47. Looking at the people that send in Chronicles sef, one would conclude that married women are more unhappy than single ladies. That does not mean I don't wanna get married though. It's about creating your own happiness.

  48. THE RESEARCH IS CORRECT. IT'S JUST THAT IN AFRICA, WOMEN ALREADY EXPECT TO BE MARRIED AT A CERTAIN AGE SO WHEN THEY SEE THAT THEIR MARRIED PEERS HAVE KIDS AND A HUSBAND, THEY FEEL DEPRESSED. PRESSURE FROM FRIENDS AND FAMILY ACTUALLY WEAR THEM DOWN TOO. BUT SINGLE LADIES ENJOY A LOT OF FREEDOM THAT THEIR MARRIED COUNTERPARTS DONT HAVE. AS A SINGLE LADY, I CAN GO HOME WHEN I WANT, EAT WHEN I WANT AND SLEEP WHEN I WANT BUT AS A MARRIED WOMAN, BY THE TIME YOUR CHILDREN WEAR YOU OUT WITH SHOUTS AND SCREAMS, PLUS THE FACT THAT YOU HAVE TO COOK FOR EVERYONE 3 TIMES A DAY, PLUS TIDY UP NON STOP. PLUS TAKE CARE OF HUSBAND, PLUS YOUR JOB, ITS NOT EASY O. THE STRESS MAKES MANY MARRIED WOMEN TO GRADUALLY FORGET ABOUT THEMSELVES AND BEFORE YOU KNOW IT, THEIR HUSBANDS ARE CHASING SINGLE GIRLS OUTSIDE.



    NEVERTHELESS, ITS GOOD TO GET MARRIED AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME. ONE THING I HATE ABOUT MARRIED WOMEN IS THAT THEY TEND TO ABANDON THEIR FRIENDS WHO ARE SINGLE LADIES AFTER MARRIAGE. DO THEY THINK THAT THEIR FRIEND WILL COME AND SNATCH THEIR HUSBANDS? VERY STUPID MENTALITY

    1. Most of these single ladies distract and advise them wrongly.That's why they cut some unnecessary friends off.

    2. I can't help but wonder the kind of men some ladies are married to. I am married but I don't really feel stressed o. We are both student and working too. We assist each other. If my husband returns home and find me sleeping and no food, he goes right straight into the kitchen to cook for us. Most Saturdays before I wake up he would have done more than half of the cleaning. We support each other a lot. He understand when I'm tired and can't have sex. And yes, God has been faithful to us. I honestly feel if you put God in the center of your home, things will be different.

  49. Totally disagree, marriage is sweet when you don't use your husband as a boyfriend, you experience bitterness in marrying the wrong person.

  50. I'm single but please Id rather get married. Why would I wona choose sleeping, watching movies and added responsibilities over the joy and fulfilment that comes from motherhood? I jump and pass abeg.

    If u marry well, I see no reason why ur happiness should deplete. Two is better than one ,so the Bible says, I don't see how I'll choose one Italian statistics over the wisdom of the Bible.

  55. I am single and very happy. What irritates me is the ones that say my own too will come o, when I congratulate them. Excuse me, I only said congratulations. Just say thank you and move on. I did not ask for your wishes in return which sound very patronizing and like pitying my position. I did not come to tell you I wasn't happy. Neither do I envy you. I only wished you well. If not for the fact that I want my own kids, I won't marry. The fact is unmarried women who are happy in their status live longer. Especially the ones without kids. Having kids takes a toll on a woman's life expectancy, both biology wise and stress wise. I am 33, and I have never been more happy in my life. My boyfriend is even careful with getting me pregnant because he knows I may not marry him. So he wants to marry proper before kids. Not everyone dreamed of marriage as a child. I didn't. In fact I told my mum that I didn't want to marry, but I want to be successful. People who are desperate for marriage are naturally dependent. If I can have a partner and kids I am good. So when next you make patronizing statements to a single lady, or think they are not happy. Please respect yourself because you may just be projecting your feelings on other's. When they say your will come, I say I am very happy as I am. I don't care if it comes or not. Then they shut up, stunned.

    2. Chronicle of a frustrated gwegs..Ur boyfriend is very careful not to get u pregnant bcos he knew u won't marry him? Or u mean ur boyfriend no wan get u pregnant bcos he knew how desperate u are and u might want to tie him down with pregnancy??
      U want to get married bcos of kids...Why don't u get pregnant already? Must u wait for marriage? Ur mates are having kids outside wedlock and u are here deceiving urself like u don't give a rat ass about marriage whereby u go to bed with tear every night asking God why he refuses to give u ur own husband..

      If u are not happy when ur married friends wish u luck in finding ur own man,then simply tell them how u feel and ask them to pray for u to remain single till death..ode like you..
      Ur bitterness is very obvious..U and Chikito likes deceiving urselves dat u don't need a man but deep down una dey cry and boil inside bcos of lack of hubby.

  57. I concur. I have a very good husband but the stress of taking care of the home front is killing me. Maybe because I am based abroad. Study also shows that married people die earlier than unmarried ones.

  58. There's time for everything in life. There is time to be single and there is time to be married (for those who are meant to get married). So there shouldn't be a battle between being single and being married. Marriage is a blessing from God. Through marriage, you get a companion for life, children, etc.

    When I was single, I ensured that I enjoyed my life as much as a single working girl in a hectic city like Lagos could. I basically did as I pleased. But there were some nights that I went to bed wishing that I had someone beside me. It got a bit lonely a couple of times but I always brushed off those feelings.

    Being married to me is definitely more fun for me but how would I have known this if I stubbornly decided to remain single. The friendship/companionship/prayer partnership/love is out of this world.

  59. Depends on the man you married. If you marry a rich man who treats you like a real queen, what else do you have to gain wishing that you are single? But if you are in a miserable marriage, then of course you will be wishing that you are single. All throughout my brief marriage, I honestly regretted marrying my soon to be ex- husband and kept wishing I was still single. Now freshly out, I don't regret but I'm still dying to meet someone else who would replace and bless me with extreme happiness and peace of mind and of course kids because I'm dying to have a child, something my ex husband didn't want anytime soon. My advice to women - take ur time and never under marry, do not marry a man who cannot place you in a better condition than your father left you or than you were in. Love is not enough to guarantee comfort and put food on the table
