NEWS: Study: Women happiest with sensitive breadwinner


(Newswise) -- A study by University of Virginia sociologists W. Bradford Wilcox and Steven L. Nock finds that the single most important factor in women’s marital happiness is the level of their husbands “emotional engagement” -- not money, the division of household chores or other factors. The study also finds that women whose husbands earn the lion’s share of income, who don’t work outside the home, or who share a strong commitment to lifelong marriage with their husbands report the highest levels of marital happiness -- in sharp contrast to academic conventional wisdom, according to the authors.

NOTE:This does not mean that women should not work, of course. Here is what John Paul II said in 1995:
"Thank you women who work! You are present and active in every area of life - social, economic, cultural, artistic and political. In this way you make an indispensable contribution to the growth of a culture which unites reason and feeling, to a model of life ever open to the sense of "mystery,” to the establishment of economic and political structures ever more worthy of humanity.
