Who Does the Most Housework at Your House?
A new poll found 56% of fathers say they split household chores and responsibilities equally with their wives. Which is great! Except it might not be true. Because 50% of mothers disagree, and say they definitely do more. Sooooo, what is really going on?
Here are a few more results from the survey -
-55% of mothers stay home alone with the kids when they're sick . . . only 4% of fathers handle that job solo.
-46% of couples say they both work full time
-26% say the dad works full time and the mom stays home
-6% say the mom works full time and the dad stays home.
-60% of women who work full time say it's tough for them to balance their job and their family, versus 52% of men.
What's the division of labor like at your house? Do you fight about it? Do you think it's a fair division?
I know personally, Bub and I struggle with work vs. family and we're constantly trying to make sure we do as much as we can around the house in order to help each other. So I guess it's pretty fair. Depending on what's going on in our lives at the time, he might do more for a while, then I'll do more for a while, and it goes back and forth. I just can't wait until the kids are old enough to do it all, or I can afford a cleaning person...whichever comes first!
