Marriage, Gender and Polyamory

According to this article in the NY times, women are working more, men are staying home more and marriages are more successful (happier and with less divorces) as a result.  Women, with more education and more economic opportunity can perhaps choose better mates who are more comfortable with sharing the responsibilities of a household.  The article also points out that while men still only do less that 1/3 of the housework their contributions have doubled since the 1960’s.  The article reports on this PEW study.
