Study suggests unemployed men more likely to divorce

A study recently published in the American Journal of Sociology reveals that unemployed men are more likely to divorce than employed men and both employed and unemployed women.

The study used data from 3,600 couples from the National Survey of Families and Households.  The data covered 1987-1988, 1992-1994, and 2001-2002.  The research was led by a professor at Ohio State University.

The study states, “Women’s employment has increased and is accepted, men’s non-employment is unacceptable to many and there is a cultural ambivalence and lack of institutional support for men taking on ‘feminized’ roles such as household work and emotional support.”

Researchers found that unemployment increases a man’s chances of divorce initiated either by his wife or himself.  Furthermore, unemployed men were more likely to divorce even if they were happy in their marriage.
