New Study: The Path to Happiness for Millennial Men Is Actually Kids


It seems that millennial dads are more likely than singles to be happy with their careers, with their workplaces, and with their life overall. 

If you are a millennial man and looking for happiness, you might want to think about becoming a dad.

Just in time for Father's Day comes a new report in which millennial fathers claimed significantly higher levels of satisfaction with their work and home lives than single men.

"When you look at the percentages and the scores, fathers just seemed to have richer, more meaningful lives that they were more satisfied with than their single counterparts," said Brad Harrington, executive director of the Boston College Center for Work & Family and a co-author of the report.

The report included surveys with 1,100 millennials between the ages of 22 and 35 who had at least two years professional work experience and were employed at one of five large global corporations in the insurance, financial services, accounting and consulting fields.
