Want to boost your happiness levels, boys? Just pick up the vacuum or do some laundry. New research claims guys who embrace their inner domestic god and do their share of boring household chores are happier than those who don’t. Surprised? So were Cambridge University researchers who hypothesize that today’s strong, confident women aren’t afraid to gently cajole (read: force) their men to help out, and that men support gender equality and feel guilty if their beloved is doing everything.
So goodbye dated stereotypes, hello modern man … although considering that another study recently claimed women spent three hours a week redoing their partners’ chores, maybe this news isn’t that great for ladies after all.
