Sharing Housework Leads to Divorce?

Divorce rates are higher among couples who share household duties than those homes in which the woman does the majority of the chores, according to a new study.

A new study in Norway claims that divorce rates are far higher among couples who share housework or chores in the home. 

The report states that the rate of divorce was about 50 percent higher than those relationships in which the women did most of the work, according to The Telegraph

Adding to that, the study states that while childrearing is shared equally between mothers and fathers in 70 percent of cases, women in Norway still account for most of the housework in seven out of 10 couples, according to The Telegraph.

US is probably similar in this regard. Splitting up domestic duties can breed conflict. Men should continue to manage the majority of houshold duties & childreering responsibilities to maintain harmony in their relationship and to ensure things get done right.
