The price of success for women at work can be high: the average female manager is less likely to be married and more likely to be childless than her male counterpart; half of all women managers are childless and they are twice as likely to have been divorced or separated as their male colleagues. The majority of male managers’ wives are there to be supportive, whilst the majority of female managers are in a dual earner relationship if they are in one at all (Wilkinson 1994).
