A new study shows that couples with first-born daughters are 5% more likely to divorce than those who don't, and the statistic shoots up to 10% in families who have three or more daughters.
Now that the numbers are in place, psychologists are hotly debating why families with boys have fewer occurrences of divorce. Some researchers argue that fathers are more likely to stay with their family if they are concerned about the impact a fatherless childhood may have on a boy. Others contend that women feel they will have more support from their daughter if they move out on their own than they would if they have a son.
