Researchers in the U.K. found that having a sister will make you happier and more optimistic, especially if you come from Divorce.

Tony Cassidy and Liz Wright figured this out somehow. Don’t know how they possibly could have thought to ask about Divorce because no one ever does. Maybe that’s only in the U.S.

He said: “Sisters appear to encourage more open communication and cohesion in families. However, brothers seem to have the alternative effect. Emotional expression is fundamental to good psychological health and having sisters promotes this in families.”
Girls who had sisters also tended to be more independent and keen on achievement, according to the findings.
The effects were stronger among children from broken homes, suggesting that sisters might lean on each other more for support when their parents divorce.
