Study finds that household chores are connected to divorce
A Norwegian study regarding household chores and the overall divorce rate was published last week, and the findings showed that divorce was more common among couples who chose to equally split household duties than those who did not.
Data that was used in the study was from 2007 and 2008, and involved thousands of married Norwegian couples. The researchers connected to the study, entitled “Equality in the Home,” were searching for a connection between household chores and happiness.
The results from the study concluded that couples who shared household chores equally were almost 50 percent more likely to undergo a divorce when compared to marriages where the women did the majority of the housework. The results also indicated that the women in these marriages were more financially stable, and therefore were able to make it on their own in the event of a divorce.
