A study involving thousands of Norwegian married couples shows that divorce rates are higher for married couples that share housework equally. About 25% of the couples who participated in the study divided housework equally.
The findings show that in 71% of marriages, women do more of the household chores. This group has a lower divorce rate than the couples who split housework evenly.
The group with the highest divorce rates were the couples in which men did most of the household chores. Researchers in the study have stated that the evidence shows that “gender equality in the home does little to protect against divorce.”
