Would it be news to you to hear that husbands can be the biggest source of stress in a woman’s day? Even more stressful than our kids!?
A new study conducted by TODAY.com which included over 7,000 mums.
The results showed that the average mum rates her stress level an 8.5 out of 10. In addition, 46% of the women surveyed said that their husbands cause more stress than their kids.
The survey revealed that three in every four mums with partners reported that they do most of the parenting and household duties.
A lot of the time this is because their partners are working full time or simply because they prefer to do the job themselves so they know it gets done.
Sources of stress for the mothers surveyed include:
- Not enough time each day to accomplish everything that needs to be done.
- Responsibility for most of the parenting and household duties.
- Inadequate help from their spouses.
- Single mothers (understandably) experience the highest levels of stress, as they have zero daily support from a spouse.
Who stresses you out the most? Hubby or kids?
