So what’s this surprising new study? We’ll get straight to the punch. It’s sharing household chores.
That’s right; you heard it correct. Sharing household chores is one of the major keys to a successful marriage.
According to a recent study from the Pew Research Center, more than 50 percent of married couples say that dividing household responsibilities is crucial to the success of their marriages. Further shocking, more husbands were found to agree with this statement than wives. Also interesting to note, the division of chores ranked just below sexual satisfaction and above income in terms of their importance to a relationship.
So, yes, do schedule time to make intimacy a priority. And also put financial security near the top of your list of relationship goals. But remember: before you head out for date night, be sure to clean the house first—together.
BMWK, are household chores evenly split in your house? If not, how do you divide the work?
