Divorce is a huge stress for many women, sometimes against a background of this there are a variety of serious diseases, both physical and mental. Women need to learn to protect themselves from these ills. However, recent researches showed that women become happier after divorce than men.
After divorce, many couples often focus on accusing each other of actions and behavior that led to parting. At the same time, according to a research, which 2 thousand American women and men participated in, 64% of women blame their ex-husband for divorce, while only 44% of men consider their former wife to be the culprit of an unsuccessful marriage.
So why are women more inclined to blame their former partners after divorce?
Dr. Pepper Schwartz, a sexologist and sociology professor at the University of Washington, believes that the reason for this behavior lies in firmly entrenched views on traditional gender roles.
It is possible that women consider self-incrimination not to be an encouraging practice, making them weaker, and men may not feel masculine enough if they blame their wives. Probable, this is the reason why such a bias can be obtained.
And that is not all. The same survey showed that women feel happier after divorce than their husbands - 73% versus 61%. Moreover, 75% of women said that they prefer to be alone, successful and happy than to be in a relationship, but to be unhappy. This scenario is preferred by only 58% of men.
Men are more afraid to remain alone after they are domesticated in marriage, and even though many of them consider the institution of marriage to be an obsolete concept in principle, they are still more inclined to want to stay in stable relationships, even if they are not so good.
After much observation and many researches, psychologists found that after divorce most men fall into sadness and depression, treating divorce as betrayal on the part of their wife. Only 37% of respondents two years after divorce felt a taste for freedom and only 22% were happy that they became bachelors.
At the same time, women consider happiness to be more important than marriage and are less afraid of independence as a whole. This can explain the difference in percentages. The fact is that women perceive divorce as a way out, salvation. This conclusion was made on the basis of a poll of 10,000 people aged 16 to 60 years.
