Are Men Happier When They Do Their Share of Housework?

Men Happier With Housework
George Marks, Hulton Archive

Men might occasionally groan when asked to do household chores, but, if you can believe it, doing their part around the house might actually make men happier.

Researchers at Cambridge University looked into the division of domestic labor among the sexes. They expected to find that inĀ arrangementsĀ in which men did their share of the chores there would be more relationship conflict, and the men would be less satisfied with their home life. But that wasn’t the case at all. They instead discovered that a man’s well-being improved when he was tasked with more household duties.

“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.

So ladies, don’t hesitate to give your fellow that mop. Just ask yourself, “Why should I deprive him of something he loves?”
