House husbands are more likely to suffer from stress and serious health problems, says study

A new research claims that men who are not main earners of the house and are financially supported by their wives are likely to suffer from stress.

The study showed that being a house husband may be dangerous for the health and can increase the risk of suffering heart problems, long-term lung disease and stomach ulcers.

This happens because such men may be made to feel less by their friends, family members, and even their partners and children, found the research.

This can affect a man's sense of masculinity, self-confidence and abilities and he may seek to regain his manliness through smoking, drinking and eating unhealthy food.

For the research, the team studied nearly 1,100 married couples over three decades and found health problems in men with wife as the main breadwinner early or late in the marriage.
