The Balance: Do this and your wife is more likely to divorce you

Money won’t make or break your marriage, but how you spend your time both in and out of the house might, suggests new research published Thursday in the journal American Sociological Review.

“Financial factors do not determine whether couples stay together or separate,” says study author Alexandra Killewald, a professor of sociology at Harvard University. “Instead, couples’ paid and unpaid work matters for the risk of divorce, even after adjusting for how work is related to financial resources.”

The study looked at more than 6,300 different-sex couples — some married before 1975 (these couples are more likely to have traditional marriages where the woman stays home and the man works) and after 1975 (these couples are less likely to have traditional marriages) — all ages 18 to 55.
