Husbands Create Housework.


HouseworkRecently, I was sent a link to a Reuters article with a headline stating that husbands create an extra seven hours of housework a week for their wives.

After this weekend with my beloved, I believe that.

The quote in the article that caught my eye, however, was the one that said,

"They 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."

So, if a mother of three does four hours of housework a day, works for eight, drives to work for one, and IF they sleep for eight hours (HA!) then they should still have three hours a day to do, whatever they want.



Anyone else know where those three hours go?

Because I can't find those hours anywhere and I've been looking for a really long time now…

I'm also thinking twelve hours of housework a week sounds nice.

Anyone know how I can be young and single again?

I'm willing to pay….
