      I heard a preacher once say "Marriage is like a screen door. All the flies on the inside want out and all the flies on the outside want in." I think, as in all things, he is who content is best off.

      Far too many variables to address this question in depth, so I will just contribute a general observation.  It seems as though marriage raises the stakes.  A good marriage, to the right person with the friendship, love and support that brings, allows a fulfilled life that for most people could be achieved no other way.   A bad marriage can similarly provide grief, pain, mental anguish and frustration that could be achieved almost no other way.  So I suspect if there was a way to actually and accurately gauge how happy folks are you would find marriage contributes largely to those at both ends of the scale.  As for those who find themselves between those extremes, (most everyone), I still think few would rather be alone.
