Live-in boyfriends do more housework than husbands

 

A live-in relationship certainly seems to have some advantages over marriage for women, especially with a new study finding that live-in boyfriends do a lot more housework than married men.
 

The study was carried out by researchers at George Mason University who questioned more than 17,000 people in 28 countries.
 
They found that married men tend to help around the house less than live-in boyfriends.
 
According to study co-author, sociologist Shannon Davis, the key finding of the study is that it suggests the institution of marriage changes the division of labour.
 
Couples with an egalitarian view on gender--seeing men and women as equal--are more likely to divide the household chores equally. However, in married relationships, even if an egalitarian viewpoint is present, men still report doing less housework than their wives.
 
"Marriage as an institution seems to have a traditionalizing effect on couples--even couples who see men and women as equal," says Davis.
 

"Our research suggests that couples across many countries are influenced by similar factors when deciding how to divide the housework. It's the way the society has defined what being married means, the institution itself, that affects behaviour," she added.
 
Co-authors on the study were Theodore Greenstein and Jennifer Gerteisen Marks of North Carolina State University.
The study is published in the Journal of Family Issues
.

it's bound to be.

 

men dont show egos,that they do in marriages,else they will be labelled as joru ka gulam.

there's no intereference of inlaws,girls dont have to "please" inlaws,unlike in marriages

 

live is the best,if both are unmarried.

Agree witb Roshani. Kushan ji, a big YES to your post. Not only gender division of labour, marriage changes the entire attitude of a boy even if it a love marriage. In the courting days, say for exaqmple, the girl firend wear whatever she wants to , denims,and skirts say for example. The moment she gets married the frined turned husband now insists on wearing "appororiate clothings" , I have seen many cases like this...

Turning into husband matamorphosise a gender equal thought and action driven boy/man into a husband who adopts now superior-inferior relationship attitude towards self and wife...

Live in relationship cannot be taken for granted and it is based completely on mutual love and respect....which many marriages susbsisting or failed otherwise lack....

LEGAL BINDING SHAPE THE MARRIAGE IN AN UNNATURAL SHAPE.

IN A LEGAL MARRIAGE FINDING THE FAULT OF OTHER PARTY IS IN CENTRE POINT AND HIGHLIGHTED AS MAIN POINT OF CONSIDERATION. THE PURPOSE IS VERY SIMPLE. BY THIS WAY ONE CAN EXTRACT MAINTENANCE.

IN A LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP, THE MAIN FOCUS IS ON LOVE AFFECTION AND SUBMISSION.

FOR A MARRIAGE,  WHICH ONE IS MORE IMPORTANT - EARNING MAINTENANCE OR LOVE, AFFECTION AND SUBMISSION.

UNNECESSARY GOVERNMENTAL INTERFERENCE CREATE THIS DIFFRENCE.
