A recently published Norwegian study utilizing data from 2007 and 2008 revealed that the division of household chores are correlated to the number of divorces that occur among married Norwegian couples.
The data supports the idea that equality in the home may not mean a successful marriage. Different factors were measured in the study, including happiness in marriage and the amount of chores that were performed by the men and women in their respective marriages.
The results of the study indicated that marriages in which household chores were split equally between husband and wife did not last as often as marriages in which the woman handled the bulk of the duties at home.
Divorce is a serious matter and should be handled with respect for both parties involved. If you have questions regarding divorce, please contact the divorce attorneys of Marshall & Taylor PLLC, by calling 919-833-1040 today.
