Fairness in Housework Doesn’t Mean 50/50
Happiness at home comes from each spouse owning tasks completely—not dividing everything exactly down the middle
"When I asked women what makes the biggest difference in their marital satisfaction, they said that it depends much less on whether tasks are split 50/50 in the household than on whether their partners fully conceive, plan and execute a task."
Fairness in Housework Doesn’t Mean 50/50: Men need to fully “own” the tasks they take on.
"a well-known study from the 1990s, in the American Journal of Sociology, found that the more married women earned compared with their husbands, the less housework the husbands did."
Why does “equal” never seem to work out when it comes to men sharing household duties with women? Maybe it’s the wrong goal.
