The Key to a Happy Marriage Is . . . a Husband Who Works Long Hours
If you're PASSIONATE about wrapping up at work at exactly 5:00 P.M. so you can get home and spend as much quality time as possible with your wife . . . she would actually be a lot happier if you'd STOP.
According to a new study by the University of Texas, the key to a happy marriage is a husband who works long hours.
Researchers found husbands who worked at least 50 hours a week had the happiest wives.
Why? The theory the researchers came up with feels SURPRISINGLY SEXIST. They believe the wives are happier because men who work longer hours make more money . . . which means they can afford a maid.
Having a maid gives their wife more time to exercise and stay healthy. And, I guess her healthy body makes both her and her husband happier?
The study also found the effect ISN'T reversed. When a wife works at least 50 hours a week, it doesn't lead to a happier marriage . . . it only works when the MAN is putting in overtime. (Daily Mail)
