Ladies, you’d better sit down. Because according to a study published by Cambridge University, men actually like to do the housework.
Domestic arguments decline and the general happiness of the home gets better when men do more of the job of looking after the house, it says.
But it also said that men prefer a quiet life with the domestic chores to a noisier one with a discontented other half.
“It may be because more men support gender equality, so they feel uncomfortable if the woman does most of the housework, and because women are becoming more and more assertive and making their dissatisfaction with lazy partners plain,” the study said.
The latest study, by Cambridge University Professor Jacqueline Scott and a team of academics, based its claim on a survey that covers 30,000 people in 34 countries.
They were asked how much time they spent on jobs such as cooking, washing, cleaning, shopping and maintaining the house.
