Domestic Disturbances

Illustration for article titled Domestic Disturbances

A new study shows that chore-disparity between men and women still remains. Married ladies do, on average, seven more hours of cleaning than their hubbies. University of Michigan researchers found that being married saves men an hour of housework a week, while married women with children do even more than their fair share of cleaning than the female half of a childless couple. According to Reuters, scientists "found that young single women did the least amount of housework, at about 12 hours a week. Married women in their 60 and 70s did nearly twice that amount, while women with more than three children spent 28 hours a week cleaning, cooking and washing." [Reuters]

Stripped the floors last night. Not as exciting as you might imagine, but my husband did get pretty excited when he asked what I was doing and I said "getting ready to strip."
