Almost every relationship has a use by date.
Unless, you know, you get married and live happily-ever-after.
So, when that icky part of a relationship comes up, who is most likely to bail?
Scientists decided to use their valuable time researching this. You know, to give them a break from all that other serious stuff.
Previously, only research had been done on who pulls the plug on their marriage.
In the United States, Europe and Australia, women were more likely to say they want a divorce than men. In the most recent research which looked at 2,262 adults in heterosexual relationships from 2009 to 2015, 69 per cent of the divorces were initiated by the wife.
Study author Michael Rosenfeld says that women reported being less satisfied in the marriage. Rosenfeld put this down to women seeing marriage as "constraining, oppressive, uncomfortable and controlling". He said that in the US, women were often younger than their husbands, earned less money and took their husband's last name which may lead to their view of marriage.
