A Norwegian study seems to discourage men form sharing housework with their wives, warning them of the risk of divorce.
The research found the risk of divorce high in such families where men shared the domestic chores as compared to households where women do all the housework.
"The more a man does in the home, the higher the divorce rate," researchers said.
Researchers said this was a case of modern attitudes which reflect in the way they divide the chores and in the way they look at marriage itself.
"There could be less quarrels, since you can easily get into squabbles if both have the same roles and one has the feeling that the other is not pulling his or her own weight," researchers said.
The study also found that women in Norwegian households were very satisfied when they did all the housework and their happiness was equal to women who lived in 'modern' set ups.
