Good Luck.
Most people believe that the biggest grounds divorce are either infidelity or arguments money. However, a new report British law firm Gateley suggests otherwise. According to its analysis 350 divorce cases, seven out ten divorces occur because disputes over who does what household chores. Twenty per cent divorces are due to unfaithfulness. Gateley says gone are the days when the wife did all the cooking and cleaning. Dual income marriages now mean split responsibilities vacuuming, doing the dishes and tidying. Gateley advised couples to discuss who does what walking down the aisle. A spokeswoman said that, "going a marriage blind could be a recipe disaster".

Conversely, a study in Norway suggests that couples who share household chores are more likely to split . Thomas Hansen, co-author of the report 'Equality the Home,' said the divorce rate couples who shared housework equally was 50 per cent higher than those where women did all the work. Mr Hansen said that Norway women did most the housework in 70 per cent marriages, and were "largely happy" to do so. An adverse side effect marital discord is that many families are now "too poor to split ". The U.K. charity Relate said that many middle-income families, couples stay together because they can't afford to divorce. Relate says this results a "toxic" home environment.
