Boyfriends Do More Housework Than Husbands
shocked and awed, i am.
Married men do less housework than live-in boyfriends, finds an international survey. But married women do more housework than their live-in counterparts...
Couples who viewed men and women as equals were more likely to divvy up chores equally. But even in "egalitarian households," married men still contributed less to household chores than did their wives. "It's consistent with prior research, which has shown that the roles of wives and husbands are very powerful," Marks told LiveScience. "In a cohabiting relationship there aren't such strongly prescribed social norms, which trickle down to things like housework."
social roles...very powerful...you don't say. wonders really DO never cease.
