Two-income Families More Violent

December 06th, 2012 by Adam G.

I honestly can’t come up with a theory that explains this result. Having two incomes means managing the household is more stressful? Doubles the jealousy quotient? Makes both spouses feel less committed to the marriage? Heck if I know.

Assuming that there is more domestic violence at lower income levels, the only families that live on one income at that level are families that are doing so by design. They’re not the type of folks with poor impulse control who tend to get into domestic violence.

Interestingly, on the page that the original article is posted on (i.e. the one linked to in the blog post that you link to), on the sidebar, is this headline:

“Death Rate Higher for Childless Couples”

(http://psychcentral.com/news/2012/11/30/greater-odds-of-domestic-violence-for-two-income-couples/48389.html)

Yet they still can’t seem to connect the dots!
