My thanks to BBC Radio Tees which likes my voice enough to have invited me onto its mid-morning show for the second time in 10 days.
This morning the discussion centred around a report published by Michigan State University based on data collected in the UK which states that married people are on average happier than they would have been if they hadn’t got married. Apparently happiness levels of unmarried individuals decline as they get older whereas for married couples they remain stable!
It hardly sounds like the greatest advert marriage has ever had! Moreover, what better way to spoil the limited feel-good factor it engenders than by asking a divorce lawyer to comment on the increasing number of over-fifties who have seen their marriages break down?
