Professor Yannis Georgellis, Director of the Centre for Research in Employment, Skills and Society at Kingston Business School, said in the study that they took into account the fact that divorce can sometimes have a negative financial impact on women, but despite that they found that divorce still makes them much happier than men, the Huffington Post reported.

Georgellis said that one reason could be that women who are in unhappy marriages feel more liberated after divorce than their male counterparts.

The research has been published in the journal Economica.
