Study: dependence on her husband for success may reduce a wife’s feelings of worth, especially if she is well educated and, presumable, able to earn her own rewards…Nonworking housewives with attractive, high-status husbands felt less adequate than married professional women. (Conway, Jim and Sally. Women In Midlife Crisis. p 46-48. IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., 1971.)
