This article is about how if women who work and have a higher education in their marriage are more likely to get a divorce. Sociologically looking at this from the conflict perspective it seems that this would be an issue because for years women were expected to stay at home and raise a family, while men got to make all of the financial decisions. At one point one paycheck was expected to take care of a family of four and today currently there are more households where two incomes barely take care of a family. Now this is an issue that the patriarchal society has because women’s main focus isn’t just on the household so they are becoming more financially equal and educationally equal to their counterparts even though statistcs show that women have yet to be paid the same as men they are gradually making more money as women.
