A wonderful wife, a wonderful cook and a caring mother are just a few of many characteristics that a woman can possess during a marriage. With all the chaos that children can bring to the marriage, it’s no surprise that women experience stress along the way.
But what about the husband? Is it possible that the husband induces more stress into his wife’s life? In today’s society, more women really do feel like they are left with no choice but to parent their partner rather than rely on them.
Why? Well, read on to find out.
Many women are left to play chef, teacher, doctor, maid and even event planning in a relationship. Even though they act like superwomen, they’re not, and because of that, they run out of steam. This can affect the work that they do outside of the home.
In order to properly investigate this situation, TODAY.com conducted a survey that included over 7,000 moms. The results showed that the average mom 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.
What researchers also got from the survey was that three in every four moms with partners reported that they do most of the parenting and household duties.
One in five moms also reported that not having enough help from their spouse was a huge source of daily stress. They also complained about not having enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done.
