A new study finds that couples without children have happier marriages.

According to an article posted on The Telegraph, people without children are more satisfied with their relationships and are more likely to feel valued by their partner than couples with children.

Open University conducted the study.

Researchers found mothers were happier overall than any other group. Childless women were the least happy.

Men with children appeared to be slightly less happy than those without.
