C'mon Australian guys, wash the dishes once in a while! --- http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/fe...tudy-american-men-make-the-best-husbands.html Aug 5, 2009 6:08:28 AM Instead of constantly nagging my husband to help out around the house, apparently I should be thankful. That's according to a new study that says American men make the best husbands -- especially when compared to Australian ones. Researchers asked 13,500 men and women aged 20 to 45 from 12 countries about gender, housework and childcare responsibilities. Based on their responses, American men were considered the best husbands, followed by men from Norway, Sweden, England and Northern Ireland. Australian men finished last because they loathe helping out with the housework. "In egalitarian countries you might, in principle, expect to see women preferring to remain single rather than face the prospect of spending more time doing household chores," study author Dr. Almudena Sevilla-Sanz said. "However, this study shows that in egalitarian countries there is less social stigma attached to men doing what was traditionally women's work."
