This was one of the findings in a study that appeared in the "American Sociological Review." A Harvard sociology professor looked at 46 years of data from more than 6,000 couples and found an increase in divorce in the mid-1970s. In part, this may have been because the stigma associated with divorce declined. The professor examined both employment and the division of household chores to see how those factors affected a couple's likelihood of divorce.

When a custodial parent is incarcerated
