I can't work out how I ever found the time to go to work!

I can't work. But, I care for Jane, which allows her to.

If she gave it up, she'd die of boredom, I'm certain.

It's because if the husband don't work they are together 24/7 and end up fussing and fighting :)

I know several marriages in which the husbands don't have or want employment, and the working wife resents bearing the financial load. Even if she does not work for money, she wishes he was a contributor instead of a parasite.

Financial stress and fights over money can eat away at a marriage. But do they cause divorce? That’s a more complicated matter.

A Harvard University study suggests that neither financial strains nor women's increased ability to get out of an unhappy marriage, starting in the 1970s, is typically the main reason for a split.

The big factor, Harvard sociology professor Alexandra Killewald found, is the husband's employment status. For the past four decades, she discovered, husbands who aren’t employed full time have a 3.3 percent chance of getting divorced in any given year, compared with 2.5 percent for husbands employed full time. In other words, their marriages are one-third more likely to break up.
