Stacy Francis, certified financial planner and CEO of Francis Financial has a featured article on SAS for Women that outlines the difficulties breadwinning women face in their relationship. She details how breadwinning moms surprisingly don’t get equality at home when it comes to chores and house duties – even with the advancements women have made in terms of gender equality in the past decades.
Not only do breadwinning women face more housework than ever at home, but their husbands are also more likely to cheat the more money they make. “Funny enough, this proclivity for cheating is not seen in breadwinning women. Maybe our commitment to our spouse is enhanced by our lack of energy after working 12-hour days at the office and taking care of the kids,” Francis adds.
Escaping an unequal relationship is not a straightforward task – “Laws are in place to protect the lesser-earning spouse during a divorce so that they are provided for, financially, once the marriage is over,” she writes. You can get ahead of a potential divorce by better understanding your financial status and hiring a team that specifically works with women in these situations.
