Even in a country as equal to Sweden, it seems that the choice of loving partners takes place in traditional patterns, at least to some extent. In a recent study, researchers from the University of Stockholm have seen that in the relationship of love in which the woman has higher education than the man, the man still earns more than the woman.
The researchers have used registry data from Sweden Statistics and have studied all Swedish men and daughters born between 1940 and 1970 and their extent to which children are admitted. The result showed that men with the lowest income face the greatest risk of becoming childless.
The demographic researcher, Margarita Chudnovskaya, who reads the study says she is shocked at the results.
"It was astonishing how much the man's income plays and it seems that he even plays a role more than education," said Margarita Chudnovskaya in the Bore SVT Study.
