Husbands who share household chores more likely to divorce, says study9/28/2012
Need some ammunition to avoid cleaning the bathroom, couch-bound husbands? A Norwegian study "Equality in the Home" has found that "the more a man does in the home, the higher the divorce rate." Study co-author Thomas Hansen said the surprising results may be because, if the same household duties aren't shared, "one person is not stepping on the other’s toes," meaning fewer squabbles. Hansen said the other reason for the results could be that "modern" couples are more likely to share household duties, and women in such non-medieval arrangements are often financially independent. So a one-way ticket to splitsville is more feasible because these working women "can manage much easier if they divorce." Maybe it wouldn't hurt to do some laundry, after all. [Source]
