Things change: Womenâ€™s and menâ€™s marital disruption dynamics in Italy during a time of social transformations, 1970-2003
We study womenâ€™s and menâ€™s marital disruption in Italy between 1970 and 2003. By applying an event-history analysis to the 2003 Italian variant of the Generations and Gender Survey we found that the spread of marital disruption started among middle-highly educated women. Then in recent years it appears that less educated women have also been able to dissolve their unhappy unions. Overall we can see the beginning of a reversed educational gradient from positive to negative. In contrast the trend in menâ€™s marital disruption risk appears as a change over time common to all educational groups, although with persisting educational differentials.
