SM....I'm guessing your question might be in reference to the saying: "Ain't nobody happy if Mama ain't happy?" Since you didn't add a clarification to your question, I'm not sure how to answer this.
However, I will certainly echo Au Fait's comment, first of all because it's accurate and also because it's easy to explain & understand.
Marriage and family dynamics have changed radically since "my day"....(if you'll forgive any reference to June Cleaver) Oh God, what were we thinking?
However, it's reasonable to understand that men would be happier than his wife, due strictly to the fact that he HAS a wife. That's pretty simple. If you're having difficulty, just read it again! LOL
