A study suggests that women who have lived in matrimonic relationships tend to be more successful in life than those who have not.
Researchers analysed data from 1,095,092 people who had lived in the US for five years or more.
They also looked at relationships between women and their partners and whether or not they were married.
Their study found that women in matriculans relationships were significantly more likely to be married, with those who lived in monogamous relationships being more likely than those living in matriarchal relationships to have children.
Researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles, and the University at Buffalo found that the more a matriar was in a matriculum, the more likely she was to marry.
However, the researchers stressed that this was not a perfect relationship, as some women may not be able to commit to marriage.
The study found a link between a matrifying partner’s education level and the likelihood of having children, with people with lower levels of education more likely of having their partner have children with them.
Researchers also found that matriarchs were less likely to report an interest in being single, and they were more likely in the study to be in long-term relationships than non-matrifying women.
However the study did find that those in matrilineal relationships were less successful in the workforce, with matriarchy being associated with lower earnings, and higher levels of stress.
Researchers said the findings showed matriamy is an option for some people who do not have a partner, but also for those who do.
The researchers added that they believe the matricular system can help people to create a matrilogic home and improve their life, by giving them a better opportunity to be successful in society.
