This is an interesting reminder that men and women will always be different, however long we fight for equality. Our DNA and anthropology will always impact how men and women react to different situations - one example is discussed in this article.
To find out the link between financial dependency and overall health, researchers looked at the answers of nearly 9,000 people who took part in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth between 2007 and 2011. They found that men's psychological well-being and health were at their worst during years when they were their families' sole breadwinner. In these years, they had psychological well-being scores that were 5 per cent lower and health scores that were 3.5 per cent lower, on average, than in years when their partners contributed equally. However breadwinning has the opposite effect for women when it comes to psychological well-being. Women's psychological well-being improved as they made greater economic contributions.
