Study: Marriage adds to housework load

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (UPI) — Married women perform seven more hours of housework weekly than single women, University of Michigan researchers say.

The researchers said their study suggested the average amount of housework women do weekly dropped from 26 hours in 1976 to 17 hours in 2005, while men’s contributions to housework has risen from six hours a week in 1976 to 13 hours in 2005, the Ann Arbor (Mich.) News reported Friday.

The University of Michigan Institute for Social Research based its findings on 10 years worth of time diaries related to a study that began in 1968.
