National Marriage Project Finds Recipe for Married Parents' Happiness

Ellen Tumposky, ABC News, 12/8/2011

"When Baby Makes Three," a report by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and the Center for Marriage and Families of the Institute for American Values, finds that one-third of married couples keep their relationship strong even after parenthood... The report, based on a survey of 2,870 married people, reaffirms the conclusions of past surveys that married parents are less happy than married couples without children – or at least they become unhappy more suddenly.
