Neue Studie: Hausmänner betrügen ihre Frauen fünfmal häufiger

Der "neue Mann" gilt in Politik und Medien derzeit fast schon als Rollenvorbild Nummer eins. Die Ergebnisse einer aktuellen britischen Untersuchung dürften da etwas Sand ins Getriebe streuen:

Well-paid wives beware - men who are financially dependent on their other halves are more likely to be unfaithful, research shows. And the greater the earning gap, the more likely the man is to cheat, the study suggests. It found that house husbands whose wives work all day were five times more likely to have an affair than those who contribute an equal amount of money to the partnership. (...) With recent British research revealing that nearly at third of women are earning more than their men, the finding could raise suspicion in millions of homes.

(...) The key to keeping a man faithful, it seems, is for him to earn a third more than his wife. But men who want to keep their wife on the straight and narrow should keep her on a tight budget, the American Sociological Society's annual conference heard. The survey found that those who were financially dependent on their husbands or boyfriends were less likely to cheat than those who earned as much or more. Those women who relied on their partner for every penny were 75 per cent less likely to be unfaithful than those who contributed most or all of the household income.
