The scores reveal that couples who are engaged tend to get a bit stressful though same-sex couples and those who have up to two children are among the happiest and healthiest.

Couples of have three or more children under 16 years of age suffer from increased stress while those who are separated or divorced are the least healthy, have poor psychological scores and high rates of smoking. Single women between 35 and 49 years of age have the worst psychological scores though things improve for single people over 65 years of age.
