Equally dividing housework may lead to divorce, study says

Posted on October 5th, 2012 No Comments

Norwegian researchers recently released the results of a study they conducted regarding the correlation between household chores and the overall divorce rate.

The results indicated that marriages in which the husband and wife equally split the responsibility of household chores ended in divorce at a higher rate than couples where the wife was responsible for the majority of the work at home. An analysis of the results also showed that women were more inclined to be responsible for the chores on a regular basis.

Researchers believe that the differences in values and morals may be a large reason behind the results of this study. Marriages in which wives perform most of the household chores may be comprised of older individuals, and therefore they may possess more traditional views on marriage and divorce.
