This study proves beyond all dispute that traditional American values do matter. Only those who values traditional marriage and family can achieve both long-term success, and long-term happiness. Uncontrolled sexuality and the use of alcohol are both sure recipes for ruined lives and unhappiness.

Good to be validated. The IQ thing was interesting too.

"What made a difference there, too, Vaillant was quoted in the article, was relationships. Those with warm relationships earned more money at their peak than those without good relationships."

What's interesting is that the study comments here merely state that those who are in warm relationships fare better. It doesn't say anything about "traditional American values" or "traditional marriage." What matters most is how caring the relationships are. Isn't it time we stop discounting other people's relationships because they don't match exactly what we think a relationship should be?

Trust JCSpring to insert his own "data" into the study's findings. Were same-sex households included in the study?

Vaillant’s (study's director) key takeaway, in his own words: “The seventy-five years and twenty million dollars expended on the Grant Study points … to a straightforward five-word conclusion: ‘Happiness is love. Full stop.’ ”

Happiness is love.

So maybe Jesus had it right--love they neighbor as thy self.
