How women’s overemployment and underemployment may contribute to their depression and low relationship satisfaction of their partners
Research conducted at Tavistock Relationships shows that women’s work-hours constraint (i.e. the discrepancy between desired and actual number of working hours), may contribute to women’s depression and low relationship satisfaction of their parents. The comparison of women who were overemployed (who worked longer hours than they wished), underemployed (who worked shorter hours than they wished) with those who were adequately employed (who worked as much as they wished), showed higher levels of depression in overemployed and underemployed compared to adequately employed.
Also, lower relationship satisfaction was found in partners of those who were saw themselves as working too many hours.
Tavistock Relationships thinks that greater attention should be paid by policy makers and employers to women’s work-hours constraint, particularly where women have infant children. 71% (out of the 928 surveyed) reported not being satisfied (i.e. being employed more or less hours than desired). Significantly, this group may be identified as being at increased risk of depression and having strained and discordant relationships with their partners.
