There’s nothing sexier to a woman than doing chores together, according to a new study.
If you want to have a healthy relationship, you need to divide the chores evenly, a survey of U.S. couples found. Women who felt they did most of the work around the house were less likely to be satisfied in their relationship, as well as in the bedroom. Men didn’t really seem to associate the amount of chores with any other aspect of their relationship.
The study really highlights how hundreds of women can coordinate responses to a survey in a bid to change their man’s behavior. Sneaky stuff.
For men who thought that sharing housework duties would make your relationship more fulfilling, that’s true … for your wife. A new study, however, found that it could mean less sex for you.
Couples in more egalitarian relationships where men performed “traditionally female chores — such as cooking, cleaning and shopping” reported having less sex than those couples in which the men performed “traditionally masculine tasks — such as yard work, paying bills and auto maintenance.” Men in the survey reported having sex an average 5.2 times a month, while women reported 5.6.
… Wait a minute. 5.2 versus 5.6?
And now we know: cooking, cleaning and shopping cut into valuable affair-having time — time that women now enjoy.
Hey, readers. How’s it going? Been working on the novel you talked about? (Rhetorical questions.)
Oh, what’s that? “How’s married life?” you ask?
What a great question that I haven’t been asked since the receiving line five minutes after slipping the priest a fiver. Until now, I’ve been fumbling through it, answering as objectively as I can with less than three months of experience.
However, it’s been three months, so I can honestly explain what married is like now. The past 90 days have turned me into a marriage expert — a marriage Nazi, even — in that anyone else’s advice about marriage is sad, ridiculous and should probably be exterminated in a camp somewhere. (The advice, not the person.) Continue reading Take it from Snee: This is how married life is
