I'm not going to post any studies here -- i'm too lazy to go find them. However, I have read them before and they all indicate that women who work are more likely to divorce than those who don't. Also, the more hours a woman works the more likely she is to divorce. So here's the question: why? I was thinking about it. One article made a good point, namely that women who work have more ability to just say goodbye because they are financially independent, while women who don't work hold on to the marriage because they don't know what they would do without their man. I agree with this statement quite a bit. Here's something else that I would agree with. Hold back the screams feminists. I know you're gonna want to tear into me, but I think this makes a lot of sense. Women who work, especially the ones who work long hours are probably worn out at the end of the day, and because their sex drive isn't typically as powerful as the man's is, this often puts them out of the mood to have sex. In the end couples stop having sex as much and this ultimately increases the chance of divorce.
