New study says women get happier as they grow older

The older some women get .. The happier they become.

That's from Great Britain's National Health Service conducting their annual 'Health Survey of England.'

The study discovered women were more likely to report severe issues at almost every age.

The tables turned by the time women hit retirement.

At that point their happiness levels start to rise and overtake men's happiness levels.

One possible reason given for the differences is that women are more likely to bear the brunt of domestic caring responsibilities and as they age that weight is lifted off their shoulders.
