New Study Reports Children Bring More Happiness to Marriages

Contrary to previous research, a recent study claims that having children actually boosts happiness in a marriage. To boot, the study found that life satisfaction (especially for women) goes up with each new child a couple has together. Unmarried couples need not apply: Having children was found to have little or no effect on their relationships.

What are your thoughts on this study -- do you believe that children add happiness to a marriage or that the added stress of kids can create more strain on married couples? What about that having babies has little-to-no effect on the happiness of unmarried pairs? Weigh in below.
