    Couples who share the housework are more likely to divorce, study finds

    Divorce rates are far higher among “modern” couples who share the housework than in those where the woman does the lion’s share of the chores, a Norwegian study has found.

    I've also noticed this trend a lot, but correlation does not imply causation.

    Families in which women do most of the housework tend to be more traditional households, and more traditional couples are in general less likely to divorce.
