Need a Promotion? Consider Marriage and Your Gender

Want to live longer, stay healthy? Get married!

True, but how does marriage impact the work place, specifically, does it help with promotions?

The answer depends on your gender. Women NO; Men YES

A study that looked at college professors and their promotions found that married female professors waited longer to be promoted than their single counterparts. And men were promoted faster than women in general. The women in the study must have noticed because they reported being treated fairly at a much lower rate than the men. (Women-55.4%; Men- (84.7%).

Why the gender difference? Two reasons were noted. Women take off of their careers to have babies and to support their husbands. Both may impact their career acceleration.

Bottom line, marriage impacts the career paths of men and women differently. Marriage gives men the advantage.
