Should Employers Question You About Your Relationship?

Approximately $6 billion in revenue is lost by American businesses as a result of decreased worker productivity linked to marriage hardship. Employees in a happy marriage, in contrast, tend to increase a company’s bottom line.g

Knowing this information, should employers question you on how sound your marriage or relationship is before hiring you?  I am sure this would be considered unethical.  However I can see how a company would love to find people that have a wonderful marriage or relationship to hire.  You could also do this study to find dive deeper what about those that have a wonderful sex life, or those couples that laugh more often with each other.  These areas could affect the bottom line in a business as well.  As much as I know how important a healthy relationship is for us individually, I know new understanding of how our happy relationships benefit the entire world!
