Education was revealed to play a factor in the scenario, as 67 per cent of women had a degree, compared to just 49 per cent of men. George Charles from VoucherCodesPro, said:“There’s always a stigma that the male is the main earner of households, which is of course an extremely traditional and outdated way of thinking. The fact is, though, that times are changing and it is commonplace for women to take over the role of main breadwinner. “Our results show this and also show the benefit of having a degree. More women in our study had degrees than men, with more women also being the breadwinner. This points towards a trend of employers searching for and rewarding candidates with degrees.” Alarmingly, the domestic pay gap caused problems between 58 per cent of couples, with 44 per cent of males feeling emasculated. Elsewhere, 37 per cent of respondents said there were regular arguments and 19 per cent of men were found to look for new jobs to turn the situation around.
