Research Shows Golfers Have the Happiest Marriages

Abandoning your wife time after time to play a round of golf is just asking for trouble, right?

Wrong!

Although the average person may think more time on the golf course means less time spent with loved ones (and hence a strained marriage) this – in fact – could not be further from the truth….

Recent research done by golfsupport.com has revealed quite the opposite:

Turns out that golfers actually have the happiest marriages, and lowest rates of divorce.

500 golfers wives (who’s husbands visit their golf clubs at least once a week) and 500 non-golfers  wives were asked to rate their marriage satisfaction on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest level of satisfaction, 1 being the lowest).

78% of the golfers wives rated their satisfaction as a 5, compared to 59% of non-golfers wives.

This was closely followed by 15% of golfers wives rating their marriage satisfaction as a 4 compared to 12% of non-golfers wives.
