Marriage means something different today ... [cached]

Marriage means something different today than it did several decades ago, said Christin Munsch, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Connecticut.

In surveys from the 1970s, it was much more common for people to accept that their spouse cheated, Munsch told Live Science. They weren't looking for their partner to be their best friend, their confidante and also an amazing lover like people do today, she said.
But people today expect to get everything from a relationship with a spouse, and they have really strong opinions about cheating, Munsch added.
Not every person defines infidelity the same way, Munsch said. Does only sexual intercourse count? What about kissing, or flirting online? Another problem, of course, is that people lie, she said.

One of the co-authors of the study Christin Munsch, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Connecticut, said, "Men who make a lot more money than their partners may approach breadwinning with a sense of obligation and worry about maintaining breadwinner status."

Munsch added that women tend to indulge in breadwinning depending on the opportunities they get or the choice they make.

And a study published last year ... [cached]

And a study published last year by University of Connecticut sociologist Christin Munsch found that men whose wives earn more are more likely to cheat, leading Munsch to conclude, that there "is something about not being the breadwinner than men especially don't like."

However, things could be changing among younger couples. In a new study that examined data on married couples between the ages of 18 to 32, Munsch found that husbands' "psychological well-being and health were at their worst during years when they were their families' sole breadwinner," compared to the years when their partners contributed equally.

"Engaging in infidelity may be a way of reestablishing threatened masculinity," lead study author Christin L. Munsch, assistant professor of sociology at the University of Connecticut, said in a statement. "Simultaneously, infidelity allows threatened men to distance themselves from, and perhaps punish, their higher earning spouses. In other words, because men have been raking it in since the beginning of time, they instinctively resist giving us even one minute to feel proud about our paycheck, for fear their testicles will shrivel up. (By comparison, wives who are completely financially supported by their husbands are 5% more likely to cheat, the study found.)

For example, a woman making the moolah might minimize her accomplishments or do more housework - a traditionally feminine gender role - because she thinks it'll balance the scales with her man. "This emotional and physical work is designed to decrease interpersonal conflict and shore up their husbands' masculinity," said Munsch.

"Gendered expectations often pull people into making different career decisions," said Christin Munsch, a sociology professor at the University of Connecticut.
