Study Finds That Women Prefer Divorce Over Housewifery

According to Kathleen Gerson’s The Unfinished Revolution, 80 percent of women and 70 percent of men of all ages, races, and creeds prefer an egalitarian marriage. This marriage is built upon the tradition that both spouses share housework, child care, and provide equal income. However, the book suggests that with the inclusion of children and other variables which demand more participation from both spouses, roles between husband and wife tend to change.

The study conducted by Gerson revealed that a woman’s fallback position deviates significantly. One such fallback is placing their career on hold while tending to home and child issues at the request of their husband. The results of this study revealed that nearly 70 percent of women would prefer divorce and raising their children on their own while pursuing a career over housewifery. The primary reason for this deviation overall is that husbands typically prefer to be the family breadwinner.

A Pennsylvania State University study concluded that employment problems are one of the top ten reasons women file for divorce.
