New Study Says When Women Are More "Traditional" and Do ALL The Housework, The Marriage Will Last Longer

Norway Study, Traditional Marriages Last Longer
A recent study done in Norway found that when couples allow their marriage to be more "traditional" with the wife doing all the housework, the marriages last longer. The NOVA research institute found that divorce rates were actually higher for couples who split the housework equally. The findings seem to indicate that women who share chores with their husbands, do so because they have jobs, and thus are more financially independent to leave if the marriage turns sour.
