Next time your wife wants you to do the dishes, tell her no to SAVE YOUR MARRIAGE.

--According to a new study, the divorce rate for couples who split housework and chores equally is almost 50% higher than the divorce rate for couples where the woman does most of the housework. The researchers say they were surprised at the result.  Quote, "One would think that break-ups would occur more often in families with less equality at home, but our statistics show the opposite."  They have two theories why this happens. One is that relationships might work better when both people, quote, "have very clear roles with lots of clarity.  There could be less [arguments] than if both have the same roles and one has the feeling the other isn't pulling his or her weight." The other theory comes off sounding WAY more sexist.  The researchers say couples that evenly divide the housework are usually more, quote, "modern" couples where the woman works and makes good money. That means she's less financially dependent on her husband like, ya know, women were 50 years ago . . . so she's not afraid to get a divorce.
