Have you noticed how clean and tidy your home is when others are gone? When a person lives alone, it is much easier for him to keep upright. The reason is not only in the fact that others dander and does not talk. Psychologists explain that in a household of two or more people people tend to neglect their duties because they think others are spreading more and not cleaning up enough.
Men think that their wives clean up 12 hours less – in fact, the average woman spends 17 hours per week on duty for cleaning and arranging – more than two business days. On the other hand, 26% of women think that their husband does not move and the little finger for housework. The truth is somewhere in the middle – the strong sex spends 11 hours a week on homework. This is a UK-based statistic, and it may not be true for all latitudes.
