Telegraph – In what appears to be a slap in the face for gender equality, the report found the divorce rate among couples who shared housework equally was around 50 per cent higher than among those where the woman did most of the work. “What we’ve seen is that sharing equal responsibility for work in the home doesn’t necessarily contribute to contentment,” said Thomas Hansen, co-author of the study entitled “Equality in the Home”. The lack of correlation between equality at home and quality of life was surprising, the researcher said. “One would think that break-ups would occur more often in families with less equality at home, but our statistics show the opposite,” he said. The figures clearly show that “the more a man does in the home, the higher the divorce rate,” he went on. The reasons, Mr Hansen said, lay only partially with the chores themselves. “Maybe it’s sometimes seen as a good thing to have very clear roles with lots of clarity … where one person is not stepping on the other’s toes,” he suggested. “There could be less quarrels, since you can easily get into squabbles if both have the same roles and one has the feeling that the other is not pulling his or her own weight.” But the deeper reasons for the higher divorce rate, he suggested, came from the values of “modern” couples rather than the chores they shared. “Modern couples are just that, both in the way they divide up the chores and in their perception of marriage” as being less sacred, Mr Hansen said. “In these modern couples, women also have a high level of education and a well-paid job, which makes them less dependent on their spouse financially.
Well would you look at that. Broads who make their husbands do shit they absolutely hate doing are more likely to get their asses dumped. Mind blowing.
Boy, girls are stupid. Think about this shit logically – when guys get married they are already giving up the two things they love most in this world – going out and getting fucked up whenever they want, and fucking whoever they want. Now, in addition to that, you want to make them start doing shit they hate and have never done – cooking and cleaning and laundry and shit. You ake them give up everything they love and make them do everything they hate, and 10 years later you have the nerve to cry to your mother because your ass is getting divorced. Of course you’re getting divorced. Less sex, less fun, and more chores ain’t the key to a 50 year marriage you idiots.
Bite the bullet, girls. Just do the dishes and shit. Yea in the short run it might suck while you’re actually doing dishes but in the long run when you’re not divorced you’ll be happy. Guys make the same sort of sacrifice but not banging random chicks anymore. Relationships are about compromise – faithfulness in exchange for chores. Use your brains.
