    Default Having children DOESN'T make you happy

    Becoming a parent only causes brief joy that 'wears off after a year'

    • Researchers analysed data from 4 countries: UK, US, Germany and Australia
    • They found the positive glow of parenthood only lasted for around 12 months
    • After that time there was no improvement in 'subjective well being', they said
    • But having a partner produces a positive effect that doesn't go away over time




    From a soon to be released study on the origins of happiness. Paris School of Economics.

    It's all about the culture and how the kids are raised.

    Would rather be old and die knowing I was surrounded by children,grandchildren...
    than be childless,have my husband die and know it was just me in a nursing home somewhere.
    This study is bullshit. Not to mention the thread title is misleading. It does indeed make you "happy" according to the researchers. If only for a year.

    Worst case scenario would be they murder you (even worse they cannibalize you). There are many assholes in the world. It's only natural that the more children you have the more likely you're going to have one that is an asshole.

    And almost all kids are assholes when they're teens. Will this be you one day?

    If you raise them right, that's not too likely.

    Regardless, having a family will still be a goal for many, including myself. Happiness starts looking like a shallow pursuit when you compare it to the goal of continuing your legacy, as inconsequential as it is in the grand scale of things.
    I'm a tolerant liberal leftist. AGREE WITH WHAT I FUCKING SAY OR YOU'RE A HOMOPHOBE, BIGOT, REDNECK, RACIST, PIECE OF SHIT.

    Your children could pre-decease you. I know of a woman who had six children and they all died before she did. There are no guarantees your children, or grandchildren, will be there for you in old age.
