Couples With Daughters More Likely to Divorce

Quote:
Not only did researchers find that couples with sons are more likely to stick together, unmarried pregnant couples were more likely to have shotgun weddings if the baby was going to be a boy and divorced mothers of boys are more likely to remarry and stay remarried.
Trouble makers from birth.

More like: if'n it's a boy it's gotta have every opportunity to live a legitimate life.

To hell with a coupla girls! They have no real standing in society anyway. I mean, she might be the next Palin or O'Donnell, gawd forbid.

It's nothing against the girls, it's all based on the fact that custody defaults to the mother in most divorces.

The husbands don't want their boys to turn out wussy, so they're less likely to accept the idea of the woman raising them alone 26 days out of the month. At the same time the women feel less capable of raising boys on their own, so they'll either stay with the husband, or they'll find a new man, whichever's easier.

There's also a suggestion that women are more likely to leave a bad marriage if they have daughters .... (a) because they want to be a good role model: leave an abusive man and (b) because they will most likely have their daughters support ...that sorta makes sense

Huh... it's always been my anecdotal impression that the boys side with the mother, the girls side with the father. It's all Oedipal 'n shit.
