New study: the impact of divorce on the further existence of men and women

Edition of The Star published the results of a survey that was conducted by the Business school of Kingston. Based on the processed data women are much easier to tolerate separation and perceive divorce as a way out of this unpleasant situation. Despite the fact that in most cases, after the divorce, the woman appears in several disadvantaged financial position, but the freedom that they acquire, it is going to save them.

The survey involved 10,000 people, with the age limit from 16 to 60 years. During the 20 years they were asked to assess whether they were satisfied with life after each significant event, including divorce. Thus, based on the data gathered, the women were completely satisfied with their position in the next five years, with regard to men, then the reaction was not so clear. Divorce is not for all men was a positive point in their lives.

Guy Grenier (University of Western Ontario) explains this pattern of dependence on the financial situation. Divorce, since ancient times, the financial condition of both spouses decreased significantly. The man has lost 25% of their income, female - 50%. Now is the time, when a woman gets on a level with the man. Women can earn more and at the same time, the circle of the female is much broader than in men, which explains their positive emotions during the divorce.
