Men, on the other hand, see the hours they commit to housework decline once they begin living as a couple, she found.
Hold on - Something has seriously gone wrong, my housework went up when I got married. And I must tell the wife the average housewife does 9 hours a day, so she had better get her a**e into gear.

I'm with you on this one.... putting the washing machine on and waiting for it to finish does not constitute 2 hrs washing. It takes 2 mins to load the damn thing and about 5 seconds to find the power button...

..and don't you love the way the washing fairies come and hang it out on the line, fetch it in when it's dry and how they know which drawer/wardrobe to put it all away in again? and the cleaning fairies, shopping and cooking fairies, gardening fairies....
