Women are more miserable than men for almost their entire lives and are happier only after the age of 85, according to a large NHS survey.
It found that women get progressively happier in retirement before overtaking men in their ninth decade. Psychiatrists say that this may be because so many are widowed by then.
Growing numbers of Britons are reporting consistent unhappiness, the Health Survey for England found, with women more likely to report severe problems at almost every age.

"Women ... are happier only after the age of 85."
BECAUSE THEIR HUSBANDS ARE DEAD!!!!
Men suck. Now you know.
Also, 50% of the people at 85 have dementia. All your worries are gone once you dont remember what they were. (Only half joking)
The Men are probably happier too :^)
[Growing numbers of Britons are reporting consistent unhappiness]
It is because they have forsaken GOD. The JOY of the LORD is our strength.
God's giving the guy a break before eternity really kicks in!
so basically ... they are only happy when all the men in their lives are dead!
Everybody else is dead.
The percentage of octogenarians in Congress with dementia is much higher than 50%.
In 2011, life expectancy at birth was 78.7 years for the total U.S. population, 76.3 years for males, and 81.1 years for females.
Males don’t live as long (presumably because we’re married to females).

Many women wallow in claims of victimhood.
Churchill to the woman who told him if he was her husband she would give him a poisoned beverage-—
“If I was your husband I would drink it!”
Yes, after they are widows...particularly if their late husbands left them well off...they get happier. While their husbands are alive they are miserable and try to make their husbands as miserable as they are.
My thoughts exactly.
I’m in pretty good shape, but my ex wife will live to be at least one day older than me. That will make her very happy.
I’m guessing these stats are skewed by the liberal men being told by their liberal wives what to say.
The husbands are happier too, so it works out for everyone.
