I work full-time. My huband does not. He helps out by doing more chores around the house.

According to a new report from Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Science, that means I’m headed on the fast track to divorce-ville.

Yep. That’s right. This ridiculous study showed that families that conformed to traditional, stereotypical gender roles were less likely to get divorced.

On the other hand, houses where the men had to do more housework had a higher percentage of dissatisfaction on behalf of the husband. Thereby, they had a greater risk of divorce.

This whole study was based on interviewing men and women between the ages of 18 and 79.

The research showed that couples are happier when they have clearly defined roles in the home.

I’m okay with clearly defined roles. I’m not okay with working 50 hours a week, and then having to come home to a houseful of chores.

This stupid study contradicted research out of Cambridge earlier this year that found men were perfectly happy when they shared the housework.

I don’t even have to do a big research project on this. Both parties share the housework, and everyone will be happy and content. Done. The End.
