Man or woman, which remains in the housing after a break-up ?

A study of the Insee is interested in the behavior of men and women after a separation, and on the one (or the one) that continues (or not) to live in the matrimonial residence. Here is the result.
When a couple separates, in 75% of cases one of the two is still living in the home and marriage, reveals a study by the Insee published on 17 July 2017. And more often than not, this is the man who keeps the well. Thus, after the first year of fracture, 43% of men are still in the property compared to 32% of women. In 20% of cases, the two have left the marital home and in 5% of cases, the two spouses live together despite the separation. However, the survey of the institute shows that this gap is narrowing over the years. For example, at the end of 4 years, 27% of men are still in the housing, and 22% of women.


A departure which is dependent on the age and type of union


Another finding : the higher the age ahead and more men and women to a lesser extent, remain in their property. Well, a year after a fracture, 60% of men and 77% of women under 25 years of age have been moved. Conversely, in the over 55 years of age, the rate rises to 47% for men and almost 60% of women.


The study also noted that depending on the type of union (pacs or marriage), the reactions are not the same. Thus, man and woman remain in their housing if they are married (43% for men and 33% for women) than if they are in a civil partnership (39% for men and 23% for women).


A number that varies depending on the location and status of occupation


The residential area and the occupancy status of the dwelling prior to the fracture were also studied. So, men living in rural areas to remain in their homes (56%) than those living in major cities (38%). The conclusion is the same as that for women with a difference for those living near of Paris (34% in rural areas and 41% in the urban unit of Paris).


According to the status of occupation of housing before the break, the men owners stay in their well-46% of cases, against 30% of women. In the case of hiring in the private park, the men remain in 37% of cases compared to 27% of women. On the other hand, if it is rental in the park social, so here it is the women who retain the most (48% women vs. 37% men).


Finally, when there are children and that it is the woman who has sole custody, she is the one who remains more in the housing (41% compared to 32% of men). Sole custody by the father coincides more strongly with the retention of the housing (56 %). In the other types of guard, the man also remains significantly more often in the slot. Finally, even if more women have sole custody of the children, on the whole couples with children who separate, the gap continues to favour men.
