Wives with more education than their husbands no longer at increased risk of divorce

24 julio 2014

For decades, couples in which a wife had more education than her husband faced a higher risk of divorce than those in which a husband had more education, but a new study finds this is no longer the case. «Overall, our results speak against fears that women’s growing educational advantage over men has had negative effects on marital stability,» a co-author said. «Further, the findings provide an important counterpoint to claims that progress toward gender equality in heterosexual relationships has stalled.»
