A new study is challenging the conventional wisdom that sharing household duties will reduce your odds of divorce.
Divorce rates were actually higher for the couples who shared housework equally than for the couples where women did more or all of the housework.
Researchers say the study could be an indication that the type of modern couple that shares housework equally might also have more modern views on marriage and divorce.
The findings are not an excuse for you to start slacking on your chores.
