How much time do I waste a week cleaning up after my adorable but messy husband? Reuters says seven:
“For married women who can’t figure out why they always have so much housework researchers may have the answer—husbands.
A new study from the shows that having a husband creates an extra seven hours of extra housework a week for women. But a wife saves her husband from an hour of chores around the house each week.”
I’m pretty sure the story isn’t that far off. Several times this weekend I came into the living room and found a plate or bag and would ask my husband: Is this going to walk itself into the garbage? He would then tell me: I was about to throw it out.
About â in guy speak â can mean anywhere from one minute to seven hours.
Granted, I have my messy moments, too—but they are far less frequent (probably because of that whole female nesting thing).
So, how much of your week is spent cleaning up after each other?
