Recent reports show that an increasing number of working women in the US and the UK are making more money than their husbands. However, more reports reveal that husbands with a lower income than their wives are five times more likely to be unfaithful. And, women with a higher education than their husbands are 38% more likely to divorce than women with an equal or lesser education.
The rift in these marriages could come from feeling less masculine or less feminine. Men naturally like to provide, and when they earn less than their wives, or nothing at all, they feel emasculated. Sometimes, in their isolation, they resort to having an affair with the woman next door. Women, while enjoying their rise in the workforce, often feel added pressure and stress when they are the sole bread winners. Women also may feel worried about how their husbands are doing in their position, especially since losing jobs is more prevalent in this economy.
Remember that the important thing in a relationship is not work, but respect and love for one another.
