4 Relationship Issues That Could Lead to Divorce
Signs Divorce Could Be a Good Option
It's not sex or money but rather, a maid that may be the secret to a happy relationship! The Doctors discuss a study out of Harvard Business School and the University of British Columbia which examined 3,000 people in relationships and found that couples willing to purchase time-saving services, like a cleaning person, were more likely to have a happier relationship.
"Makes sense to me," plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says. He says studies show that conflicts over chores are one of the primary reasons for divorce. Both men and women find it frustrating to come home from work and feel they have a second shift of work at home!
If you can't afford a maid, this doesn't mean your relationship is doomed. Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra points out the most important thing is to have a conversation about these chores so that neither party feels they have a disproportionate amount of work. OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry agrees and notes if only one partner bears this burden of the chores, they may feel they are underappreciated or their time is not valued.
"You never want to resent your partner. You always want to feel like you're having that conversation and sharing those responsibilities whatever they may be," Dr. Batra says.
