  1. “All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” This is one of the most famous first sentences in world literature. To explore the question of why this is the case, Leo Tolstoy wrote a novel of around 1,000 pages. In their new study, Mikko Myrskylä of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock and his colleague Rachel Margolis of the University of Western Ontario also tackle this issue, albeit in a more narrow, but much more precise way.
