men are more depressed than women

Men are more likely to feel depressed and angry than women if they are childless,a new has claimed.


Men without children tend to associate jealousy,loneliness,and depression with the fact that they did not have kids,according to research from Keele University.


The impact can last a lifetime,with many older men feeling pangs of regret when their friends become grandfathers,the study found.


The findings also showed men felt the absence of children in different ways to women,The Telegraph reported.


While some women said they felt guilt about not having children and spoke of feeling a biological need,men were more likely to cite cultural and family expectations.


Meanwhile,among those already parents,women are more likely to feel a strong desire for a second child.


The study was presented to the British Sociological Associations annual conference in London by Robin Hadley,a counsellor and doctoral student at Keele University who interviewed two samples of men and women with and without children.
