Married couples who share housework more likely to divorce, Norwegian study claims

Friday, September 28, 2012

Married couples who share housework may have a higher chance of splitting up.

A Norwegian study shows when men share the chores the couple had about a 50 percent higher rate of divorce than couples in homes where the woman does most of the housework.

The authors of the study suggest that clear and defined roles may lead to fewer arguments and less tension in the marriage.
