Having children will make you happier than staying childless, according to a new study, but not until later in life, when they have flown the nest.

一项研究表明,有孩子的家庭比丁克家庭更加幸福,但这里指的是孩子都已长大离巢的家庭。

A team of researchers at Heidelberg University in Germany found that parents tend to be happier than non-parents in old age, but this only holds true if their kids have moved out.

德国海德堡大学的一组研究人员发现,年龄渐长后,有孩子的夫妻比没有孩子的夫妻更加幸福,但这只有在孩子搬出去的情况下才成立。

Scientists asked 55,000 people aged 50 and over from 16 European countries about their mental well-being, and results suggest "the positive aspects of parenthood dominate when getting older."

科学家对来自16个欧洲国家的5.5万名50岁及以上的居民进行了调查,询问他们的心理健康状况,结果显示:年龄渐长后,亲子关系的积极方面更多地显现出来。

One of the biggest factors is that children become a form of social support, and the researchers point out that social support networks are associated with greater happiness and less loneliness and can act as a buffer against stressful events.

其中一个最大的因素是,孩子成为了父母的一种社会支持。研究人员指出,社会支持关系网会提高幸福感,减少孤独感,面临压力时可以作为缓冲剂。

However, children who still live at home are shown to have a negative effect on well-being.

然而调查也显示,那些子女仍未离巢的父母的幸福感大打折扣。
