Are men finally doing their fair share of household chores?
Here at Home of the Houseproud, we’re incredibly interested in the changing roles of men and women around the house and how couples work together to share the workload (or not as the case may be).
An article in the Daily Mail today reports that men are finally catching up in their contribution to household chores, which is great news. Over the last thirty years, men have increased the amount of time they spend on domestic duties by more than 60 per cent.
The average woman now works five hours and 55 minutes a day on employment and chores, while the average man spends five hours and 37 minutes, with women having on average 14 minutes more sleep a night. On the domestic front, the gap is significantly larger though, with employed men spending two hours and 28 minutes on chores while women spend an average of four hours and 40 minutes a day.
You can read the online article here. What do you think? Are men’s roles truly changing or are they the same as they have always been? How do you split the chores at home? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
