There is never a true barometer that can tell you if your spouse will be prone to cheat but increasing amounts of studies have come out to affirm that your husband may be more apt to cheat if you make more man than he does. A new article published on August 17, 2010 in the Los Angeles Times displays this exact notion. A variety of explanations for this behavior have been proposed in the article including:
“Being in a relationship with a female partner who earns more than he does can make a man feel less of a man, Cornell University sociologist Christin Munsch told colleagues Monday in Atlanta, Ga., at the annual confab of the American Sociological Assn. To affirm and restore his battered sense of manhood, a man may feel he needs to go outside the relationship in search of sexual conquest, she said.”
“Now, this can’t be good because, according to Ellen Galinski of the New York-based Families and Work Institute1 in 4 working women now makes at least 10% more than does her husband. In homes with a working woman, her pay accounts for an average of 44% of the household’s income, Galinski says. And her paycheck — be it bigger or smaller than her husband’s — has for many families spelled the difference between survival and disaster in these economic times.”
