Men still don’t pull their weight in household chores.
A study from Oxford University found that despite moves towards equality men will dodge housework and childcare and instead sit in front of the television.
From the diaries of 1,427 couples, it was found that couples spend about eight and a half hours together each day. But in that time men do nineteen minutes less housework and watch eighteen more minutes of television. The author Giacomo Vagni said when couples spend time together the men are more likely watching TV while the women do domestic chores.
Preparing dinner or doing domestic chores while your partner is watching TV could affect the perception of fairness and equality. Which could affect your partnership happiness and satisfaction.
Does your partner help around the house as much as you’d like him too?
