Many of productive tasks and jobs of married women were assumed by unmarried women working in factories, and the workplace moved some distance from the household. So, a new kind of urban middle class family had begun to emerge and a new division of domestic roles appeared, which assigned the wife to care full-time for her children and to maintain the home. The divorce rate during the early and mid-nineteenth century began to rise, many states adopted permissive divorce statutes and judicial divorce replaced legislative divorce. If marriages were to rest on mutual affection, then it divorce had to serve as a safety valve from loveless and abusive marriages.

In the late 1800s, women were becoming increasingly involved in occupations formerly performed by men. By 1870, around 15 percent of women over the age of 16 were employed for wages.

Jennifer’s parents moved from Italy to Canada prior to her birth and her father spent many years working two jobs in order to make ends meet. He eventually got a construction job at a company called John Mansville and subsequently successfully ran his own construction business for several years. In order for her father to make more money and improve his employment situation, the family moved several times around the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) when she was very young. Miles Corak’s study illustrates that each time a child moves houses, their level of income later in life decreases by about $1,000 (Corak 2000, pp.140). However, Jennifer now works in a managerial position where it is difficult to believe she was, in any way, affected by the moving of houses when she was young.
