Sure, because more traditional couples don't believe in divorce in the first place.

"Modern couples are just that, both in the way they divide up the chores and in their perception of marriage" as being less sacred, Mr Hansen said. "In these modern couples, women also have a high level of education and a well-paid job, which makes them less dependent on their spouse financially.

That's because men are sick and tired of working all day and coming home to dirty dishes and no dinner. When men can sit around the house, they can go out to eat if their wife is too busy to come home and cook some food.

One of the issues I'm running into is what the definition of "clean" is, hubby and I have very different definitions.

My husband couldn't care less about matching socks and organizing his clothes, this drives me batty but I make him put away his clothes to lessen my workload.

A lot of women would just do it for them or force the hubby to do it "their" way, which just adds to stress and causes fighting IMHO.

Just my 2 cents.

On the same train of thought, my gf and I live together. Our definitions of clean vary drastically. I organize papers in neat stacks, and she won't be happy unless they're put away. If I have to jam them in a drawer then they won't be organized anymore. So what if there is a stack on my desk; it's organized.

She wants to clean things to a point that it creates an inconvenience.

Yeah. Interestingly, this is the opposite result from many other studies on chore-sharing. If they didn't control for types of couples, then the conclusion may not actually follow from their data. This article does a nice analysis of the study and its relationship to other work.

Children raised to perceive marriage as a transitional point in one's life will pretty much do the same. You want to stay married, marry someone who will work at it to avoid the stain of divorce.

/And do your part to avoid the stain, too, of course.

Normally as a liter, I don't rag on a piss poor link because there are always others to click on with Fark but this time... wow..

That three line "article" is the poster child for glossing over "Correlation does not imply causation".

The linked to article was definitely more insightful without being overly complicated. I'm sure there's actually an in-depth study to be had somewhere too but I can't be bothered.

Side-by-side it's a nice contrast and compare of how good studies turn in trite ideas.

We have a winner. This!

I am married and could not give less of a flying fark about my socks or clothes in the laundry room. I get very pissed when I go to cook and I have to clean the kitchen she literally covered every square inch with dirty dishes and utensils from baking cupcake and who knows what else for a work function. We share the duties. She never worked as a short order cook at a bowling alley. I was the dishwasher too. I learned how to cook and clean at the same time. She does not. In my view, I am right and she is wrong, but if she cleans after I really don't care how she did it.

Don't be sorry, you are right. The original study is cool though. As an American I really appreciate Norwegian Social Science. All our "research " goes into why we are fat and how to make 80 year olds hard.
 
2012-09-28 07:24:50 PM
Well, okay, sure. People with traditional views are going to be much more likely to think of their wifely/husbandly duties, stick together even when things are bad, etc. My parents knew couples who were clearly in unhappy marriages that would never have considered divorce. They made the commitment and were sticking with it.

The set of people who are setting the priority on individual happiness, different career choices, etc., is more likely also going to include the people who are likely to say "I'm not happy so I'm leaving." Big surprise.

Really, if a woman is not a good house keeper, she better be good at farking, otherwise why the hell would I be with her?

People like to go on alot about love and personality and compatability, but here is a newsflash - you can love anyone who isn't a total hosebeast. There are literally billions of reasonably attractive people out there that are pretty okay to hang out with. At the end of the day, "love" is replacable. People do it all the time.

You know what's not replacable? Having a girl that is a good house keeper and knows how to fark. That is not so common.

I'd like to add "Is a good cook" to that list. My wife isn't the greatest at housekeeping (though it was SO much better before we had kids), and we don't get to fark as often as we used to (again, it was SO much better before we had kids), but DAMN can she cook. I get gourmet meals pretty much every night (I'm not allowed to cook because I suck at it).

And this is why women need to do most of the housework.

Men have a different standard of 'clean'.

Yes, Your Man does.

Manclean = "not grimy, dirty, or filthy"

Ladyclean = "Clean enough to french kiss"

Do you know why? Because many women think of their vagina as "just another mouth", and they might sit someplace and be nearly french-kissing it.

Guess what? It takes years to get the kind of crazy where you think about unnecessarily french kissing every surface in the house. It takes years for mothers to break their boys of the idea of peeing in interesting and cool places.

People break up all the time. They move on to new relationships. Somehow, almost magically, the majority of them claim their new relationships are even better than their old ones. Astounding!

The point I was not so obliquely trying to make is that you can always love another person. Hence, love is replacable (and people do it all the time). However, that's not always the case for what someone does for you.

You'll never write a Disney movie about it, but it's the bloody truth. Also, you can't make any sort of inference between myself holding this belief and the relationship I have with my wife. If you were a little less knee-jerk and a little more thoughtful, you might realise that I appreciate the things she does for me.

I actually agree with the OP.

I've seen so many people in which the relationship is one sided (usually female dominant), it's not even funny. Add in the people with Stockholm syndrome (s/he's nice most of the time), or doesn't know that there are anything better (because they extrapolated that the handful of biatches they've dated are all people of the opposite gender). How many relationships are hanging on a thread "because of kids" or some other lame reason (because arguing in front of kids all the time without a resolution is good for them)?

It's all fun and games until the relationship is stressed. This is when you really see if people "love" each other.

I mean, can you really define what "love" is? It's an emotion for most people, and a lot of the time, it's thrown around (they "love" a particular inanimate object, etc.) You know emotions? It changes.
