CINCINNATI - If you’re looking to mend fences in your marriage, sharing time cleaning the house may not be the best approach. A study from Norway found that sharing housework could lead to divorce.
Researchers found divorce rates were actually higher for couples who split the housework equally than for couples where women did more or all the housework, according to a New York Daily News story.
Researchers say it could be because women who split the chores have more financial independence to leave an unhappy marriage.
Researchers caution that the findings are not an excuse to lessen the load of chores.
