The male subject’s stress levels fall while their wives are busy while they’re relaxing?
These researchers have never met my wife.
The “Sock who must be obeyed?”
oh… that must Sock.
Where’s the group of women that got to relax while their husbands did the housework? I call shenanigans!
I don’t think they included divorcees in the research.
I don’t care what the wife is doing, having someone taking a spit sample every 10 minutes is pretty much going to stress me out.
Could be worse…
Ahhhh… Chauvinistic Science…
Personally, I don’t give two shits how or when a man is most relaxed. I don’t keep ’em anyway!
Also, how does this spit sample thing work? Did the scientists stay with the couples, or did the couples have to live in a simulated home, like rats in a maze… Inquiring minds want to know!
For this one my tags would be “no shit”, “rocket science”, and “who gave them the grant?” because honestly this study was just dumb.
It’s all in the headline. They could have written “Both sexes hate housework and are happier when someone else does it” but who would have read it?
Women’s stress level dropped, ie cortisol dropped, when men helped with housework. High cortisol affects weight.
If you want your wife to stay thin, do the goddamn dishes once in a while.
” An I ain’t relaxed until she drops th’ Ironin’ an GETS ME A BEER!”
So to de-stress all I need to do is become a man and find me a wife.
The opposite is true if the man is doing the housework while the wife relaxes. This causes more stress for the wife because:
A) The wife can tell that the husband is hating it and can read his mind. He’s thinking “Get off your lazy ass and help me B**ch!”
B) He’s doing it wrong!
Men relax even more if women do the housework while the men are out with their buddies getting hammered at the gentlemens club.
