Information overload

There seems to be no end of research studies into families and relationship breakdown. The latest, reported by the Daily Mail today, suggests that wives who consistently earn more than their husbands are up to 38% more likely to divorce than those who do not. Suggested reasons for this include 'wounded' pride on the part of the husbands, increased work hours on the part of the wives, and financially independent wives finding it easier to get out of unhappy marriages.

Quite what we are supposed to do with this information, I am not sure.


  1. Suggest we all stop reading the Daily Mail?

  2. A good idea, but as your family law news reporter I am bound to check all sources!
