According to research, British couples spend 40 minutes arguing over household chores everyday. In fact, fighting over chores is one of the leading reasons for divorce. Imagine a husband and wife who both work full-time jobs coming home to a messy house, only to be told by the other that it’s their “responsibility” to clean up. Or perhaps one of them had spent a significant amount of time looking after the kids and running errands that they need the other to clean up.
These small disputes eventually build up and can create bigger problems for a couple. Fair distribution of tasks is important in order to create a peaceful house and keep everyone happy.
