Fox News host and former reality TV star Rachel Campos-Duffy asserted on Tuesday that conservatives had happier and longer marriages because liberal women refused to make sandwiches for their husbands.
A recently released study from professors at the University of Virginia and University of Utah found that Republican couples were more likely to say they were happy with their marriage.
On Tuesday’s edition of Outnumbered, Campos-Duffy, who has seven children and is married to Republican Rep. Sean Duffy, argued that the religion was more important than politics when it came to a successful marriage.
“I think more Republicans tend to be religious people,” she explained. “And I know for myself — and I know in the Greek Orthodox Church it’s the same idea of sanctification, that marriage is a sacrament, it’s a holy thing. And my job being married is to get my husband and my kids to heaven with me. And I think that changes the whole perspective.”
Co-host Andrea Tantaros reminded viewers that she had been mocked by liberals and feminists because she recently advised women to make men sandwiches after sex to keep them happy.
“I support this,” she told her co-hosts. “It’s not transporting women back to the 1950s, it’s just kindness.”
“Then I get crucified by feminists, mostly we know coming from liberal blogs,” Tantaros continued. “And I just thought, ‘What’s the alternative?’ I mean, ladies, if you want to fight with me all day and be against the side of kindness and respect for the one that you love, that’s a fight I’ll have all day long.”
Campos-Duffy added: “And it shows they are more likely to get divorced because they won’t make that sandwich… Make the sandwich, darn it.”
