Disclaimer: I recognize the infographic as heterosexist and "white". And since infographics are more of a visual conversation rather than true, peer-reviewed pieces of science that are generalizable, let's just acknowledge those particular shortcomings as I comment on what I feel are the most salient bullet points:
- "Married couples are unhappiest when kids are in preschool."
- "Based on a British 20-year study, people who are happiest in their marriage:
- Have been married 5 years or less
- Don't have children
- Have college degrees
- The man's employed"
But--I think a real important message is less obvious; ignore all the (questionable) stats in the infographic.
Look at the images.
In my non-scientifically based opinion think the graphic designer unintentionally nit the nail on the head:
Successful marriages are based on couples who hold hands...a lot.
