Insurance-dependent Women Have Lower Divorce Rates– Good or Bad News?

In a just released study by Heeju Sohn at the University of Pennsylvania, she found that women who were dependent on their spouses for insurance coverage had lower rates of divorce. ┬áThis finding does not mean that these women are “protected” from divorce, but rather suggests that these women are likely to have fewer options and therefore may be remain in relationships for financial reasons. ┬áThese findings are a reminder that divorce decisions are not merely about marital satisfaction, but also about all aspects of family life.
