Tina and Joe Simpson recently announced that they will be ending their 34-year marriage after Tina filed for divorce in Texas. Joe and Tina are the parents of Jessica and Ashlee Simpson.
Tina Simpson officially filed for divorce on Sept. 24, and court records show that the papers state “discord or conflict of personalities” as the reason for the divorce.
Before divorce papers were filed, rumors alleged that Joe was having an extramarital affair with a 21-year-old male model. Representation for the Simpsons has stated that theses rumors are untrue. The family’s rep went on to say that the split is “amicable” and that the family is asking for privacy during this difficult time.
A source also told reporters that Jessica Simpson is “very sad” about her parents’ divorce.
A study performed in 2007-2008 involving thousands of Norwegian couples shows that couples who share housework equally (25% of couples) have higher divorce rates than married couples in which women did most of the chores (71% of all couples).
The findings also stated that couples where men did the majority of the housework had a 4% higher divorce rate than the other two groups. Some researchers think that this may be because couples who share household chores also share modern views on marriage and divorce as opposed to traditional views, which typically frown upon divorce.
Additionally, it is thought that women in relationships that split household chores equally may have more financial independence and are therefore in the position where they can file for divorce if desired.
