Single Women Better Off

Published torsdag 22 maj 2008 kl 10.06

According to a new study, women in Sweden do better economically if they remain single, while men are better off if they are in a relationship or married.

The report from the academic union, the Swedish Confederation of Professional Associations, concludes that over a 5 year period, women earn 8 percent less if they marry or move in with someone, while men have a 15 percent higher income if they are no longer single.

Meanwhile, the annual report from the Swedish Agency for National Education says women are better educated than men in this country. According to the newspaper “Dagens Nyheter”, women here spend 22 years in school if you count all levels, three years more than the average for men. And two-thirds of all degrees granted in Sweden are to women.
