It’s been quite a year over here at Betches. We’ve had a lot of highs, and I guess some lows because nobody is perfect, not even me (or so my therapist says). If we make it into 2018, we’ll definitely look back at this past year as important—probably for bad reasons, like this was the year we plunged ourselves into a nuclear war, but important nonetheless. We’ve taken a number…

Married People Are Happier Overall, Science Says, But Also, Can Science Not?

Maybe it’s because I’m a product of divorce, maybe it’s because I’m only in my first real relationship at the age of 24, or maybe it’s because I feel like I’m constantly hearing stories about people “settling,” but I’ve always tended to be wary of people who claim being married makes you a happier person overall.
