Or, as the Daily Mail put it, “ Women are more miserable than men until their mid-80s when they are widowed and begin enjoying retirement.” “ Research shows that men derive more mental and physical health benefits from marriage into late life than women do,” she says.

The 2016 findings, released this week, included data about obesity (rates have remained similar since 2010), blood pressure (28% of adults have hypertension), smoking (there’s been a steady decline since 1993), and more.

But it was the mental-health findings that made some major headlines around the world. The 8,000-person survey showed that adult men scored higher than women on overall well-being in every age group up to 65; women finally surpassed men in their late 70s, and edged a little farther ahead after age 85.

Or, as the Daily Mail put it,

“Women are more miserable than men until their mid-80s when they are widowed and begin enjoying retirement.”

Well, that’s a serious bummer. Although the Daily Mail’s assessment does take a bit of liberty with the findings: The report only compiles health statistics based on survey responses; it can’t actually say why women’s well-being suffers compared to men’s for most of their lives, or why it suddenly gets better in old age.

And since the survey responses were from British men and women, we don’t know for sure if the results would be the same for Americans. But Gail Saltz, PhD, Health’s contributing psychology editor and author of The Power of Different, says the findings support studies that have already occurred in the United States. “Research shows that men derive more mental and physical health benefits from marriage into late life than women do,” she says. Assuming many of the men and women in the survey are married (demographics were not included in the report), this may have something to do with the disparity.

Why It’s No Big Deal If You And Your Partner Have Different Sexual Appetites

  Why It’s No Big Deal If You And Your Partner Have Different Sexual Appetites illustration credit: shutterstock Are you and your partner sexually mismatched? A couple can disagree about how frequently to make mortgage payments or go shopping each week, and it likely won't negatively affect your relationship. But disagree about how often to have sex and you could be headed for trouble. But you don’t need to let your different sex drives make or break your relationship. What to do if you have different sex drives First, understand what exactly is involved, says Robin Milhausen, a sex researcher at the University of Guelph. 'Sex drive is a hormonal, physiologically based urge that men and women have to varying degrees,' she says. 'I think it's more helpful to think about 'sexual desire' instead, which incorporates the emotional and psychological components.' Sexual interest is affected by many factors: Hormonal changes due to pregnancy or menopause, medication such as some antidepressants or blood pressure pills, fatigue, stress and, of course, relationship issues. But there are broader factors. 'My research found about 115 factors, including setting and mood, but also what you learned about sex in school, attitudes your parents had, and how open your religious, cultural or ethnic background has been to you expressing yourself sexually,' says Milhausen. (And there is also age - this is when women have the best sex of their lives.

Not the case, according to a new study from Florida State University, which has found relationships are more likely to be successful when the woman is better looking than the The research suggests there might be social factors playing a role in women 's disordered eating." Average men : assemble!

Saltz speculates that the reasons for women’s lower well-being levels could vary, from women being more likely to be caretakers to their spouses and relatives, to women being more likely to stay in unhappy or non-fulfilling relationships because of financial dependence.

Women are also diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorders at twice the rate of men—although they are also more likely to seek mental-health care, says Michael Hakimi, PsyD, assistant professor of psychiatry at Loyola Medicine.

On average, well-being scores in the report (on a scale of 14 to 70) were slightly higher for men than for women: 50.1 versus 49.6. That’s a decline from 2015, when the scores were 51.7 and 51.5 respectively. In addition, the percentage of British residents who had a probable mental illness increased from 15% in 2012 to 19% in 2016.

decrease in overall mental health and well-being is no surprise either, and also reflects current sentiments in our own country: This year’s Stress In America survey from the American Psychological Association found that nearly two-thirds of U.S. residents are stressed out by thinking about the future, with 59% of respondents considering this to be the lowest point in American history that they can remember.

Women are more miserable than men for almost their entire lives and are happier only after the age of 85, according to a large NHS survey. It found that women get progressively happier in retirement before overtaking men in their ninth decade .

Heterosexual single women were found by a new report to be happier than heterosexual single men and were less likely to venture out to find a relationship even while single (Mintel, 2017).

Hakimi says it’s not surprising that women — in the U.K. or in America — would have lower well-being for much of their adult lives. Women are more likely than men to put others first, he says—including their children, their spouses, and their parents or older relatives — before they tend to their own mental health and their own needs.

“Women’s roles used to be in the home,” he says, “and since they’ve gained more independence and entered the workforce, many have not given up those responsibilities of keeping the house and raising the children. It’s only when they reach old age that those other responsibilities are gone, and they can finally pay attention to themselves.”

So what can we learn from this depressing but not-so-shocking news? “The message, especially for women, is to take time for yourself and for things that you enjoy — no matter how many other responsibilities you have,” Hakimi says. “You have to take charge of your own mental health, because no one else is going to do it for you.”

New book explains why smart, successful women have trouble dating .
Jenna Birch’s new book sat on my desk for months before I could bear to open it. The Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life and Love is about why smart, successful independent women — the type of women men profess to want — have trouble finding steady relationships. For years my single girlfriends and I have been told by the men we date: You’re everything I’m looking for, but I just don’t feel it. Or: You’re great, but I’m just not ready for a relationship. We’ve heard the same refrains for decades, in breakup talks with men in their 20s, 30s, even their 40s. I didn’t want to open the book because it felt too close to home.But I’m glad I did.
