New Study Says Men Prefer To Share Household Chores
It’s generally assumed that men aren’t particularly enthused about doing everyday household chores but that assumption is being challenged by a new study from FastClean cleaning company. According to the study husbands and boyfriends actually feel guilty when they don’t do their fair share of household chores. How much time do guys put in cleaning up around the house?
According to a recent study not as much as women do. No surprise, right?
Women, of all ages with no children, on average do 10 hours of housework a week before marriage and 17 hours of housework a week after marriage. Men of all ages with no children, on the other hand, do eight hours before marriage and seven hours afterwards. The situation gets worse for women when they have children. Married women with more than three kids recorded an average of about 28 hours of housework a week, while married men with more than three kids logged only about 10 hours of housework a week.
Maybe now that a younger generation of men without the preconception that housework is women’s work is entering the shared residential fold things will change.
