According to the Journal of Family Issues, breadwinning women spend a disproportionately higher number of hours on household tasks and child care.
In a recent article by personal finance expert Stacy Francis in Kiplinger’s Magazine, I share that one of the top reasons couples get divorced is because of money disagreements:
“Lisa Zeiderman, a divorce attorney and managing partner for Miller Zeiderman LLP, often represents the breadwinner female spouse and shares that one of the top reasons couples get divorced is because of money disagreements. According to Zeiderman, ‘Arguments are even more likely in non-traditional marriages where the role of the main provider is reversed. In these marriages, it is even more important that the couple be on the same page when it comes to money.'”
