In fact, these results from a big research by the ESS recommend it can be guys instead of ladies that have the many to gain from a more equal distribution of housework between your sexes.
Northern European males whose woman couples did nearly all of the housework were more probably to have work-family conflict, compared with males that took on a heavier share of the housework. Perhaps guys inside this condition feel guilty for not doing their fair share or the unequal division of home jobs creates tension between them plus their partner?
