Abstract [en]

This paper studies how the gender division in time spent on housework is associated with relationship dissolution among Danish couples. The use of time diary information on the actual time spent on housework for both partners, leads to more precise measures than in previous studies. With Denmark being one of the most gender egalitarian societies to date, the results provide a reference point to contrast other societies against in terms of division of household labor and relationship stability. Two waves of the Danish Time Use Survey (DTUS; http://cssr.surveybanken.aau.dk/webview/) provided data on 3,434 respondents. This data was linked to information from the Danish administrative population registries to observe union dissolution. Semi-parametric Cox proportional hazard models were estimated to analyze how men’s contributions predicted dissolution risk after controlling for couple specific time-constant and time-varying covariates. The results show that unions are the most stable when men perform roughly 40% of the routine household tasks. Couples with the most unequal division of housework were the least stable. The conclusion is that even in a gender egalitarian society, women still perform most of the housework in order for relationships to be stable. Whether this is due to men being reluctant to contribute equally or women compensating for breaking traditional gender roles by performing more paid labor should be tackled by future research.
