Forbes Magazine recommends its readers not to marry career women.
(Link goes to [livejournal.com profile] silveraspen's journal, where the articles are recopied, as the Forbes website is an utter mess.)

Career women, apparently, are more likely to divorce their husbands, more likely to cheat on their husbands, less likely to produce offspring, more likely to be unhappy in their marriages, will probably do less cleaning, and are more likely to make their husbands sick (!) than non-career women.

Excuse me while I douse the smoke rising from my brain.

Complaints may be sent to

William Baldwin, editor (or Michael Noer, author of the article)
Forbes Magazine
60 5th Avenue
New York, NY 10011.

ETA: As the half of my friendslist that has been enraged over this already knows, Forbes took the article down and put it back up alongside a response titled Don't Marry a Lazy Man. The counterpoint article seems to be written by a female Forbes writer who was just as furious as the rest of us.
