 Literate People 'are Happier and More Successful in Love'

Literate individuals are happier, more likely to be in a lasting relationship and living in their own home, suggests a new study.

What's more, they're to be better paid, drink and smoke less, the study suggested.

According to the study by the National Literacy Trust, almost a quarter of men - 22 per cent - who struggle with reading still live with their parents, compared with just nine per cent of those with good literacy, reports Telegraph.

The research also showed that by the age of 34, 68 per cent of men and 70 per cent of women with good literacy skills are co-habiting or married as compared to 52 per cent of men and 60 per cent of women who find it difficult.

Just half of people who struggle with books claim to be "satisfied with life", compared with 78 per cent of those who can read well.

Also, literate people are more likely to get a handsome salary and are less likely to smoke.
