Married couples' health suffers when men earn less than wives
Researchers looking at more than 2,00,000 married couples in Denmark from 1997 to 2006 also found that wives who outearned their husbands were more likely to suffer from insomnia and to use anti-anxiety medication.
They did not find these effects for unmarried couples or for men earning less than their wives prior to marriage.
The finding appeared online in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
