Young men increasingly seek a traditional household where the husband is the breadwinner, while the wife stays at home, according to two studies out Friday.

These findings were also seen in the studies among young Americans in general. Nika Fate-Dixon, a professor with Evergreen State College, analyzed findings from the General Social Survey that found young adults ages 18-24 in 2014 were more conservative on many issues than their counterparts from 1994. Researchers Joanna Pepin and David Cotter also found the same results in polling of high school seniors.

For example, 42 percent of high school seniors in 1994 believed that the best family arrangement was one in which the husband was the financial-earner and the wife stayed at home — this figure increased to 58 percent in 2014. When looking specifically at men ages 18-25, support for this arrangement increased from less than 20 percent in 1994 to nearly 50 percent in 2014.
