The report also revealed that those who were either separated or divorced were less likely to be happy when compared to those who were either married, widowed or were never married. Over 78 percent of those who were in regular contact with their friends or relatives outside their immediate household were happy compared to just 28 percent of those who did not have any friends outside their household.
