Yourwellness Magazine recently posed the question of who should really be responsible for the housework in this day and age to recent visitors to its site. Renowned publication Yourwellness has confirmed that shared responsibility of housework for today's modern society is essential following a surprising poll on its website. Over a period of a month random visitors were asked two questions; who does the housework? and who should do the housework?

92% of respondents stated that all household members should do their fair share which is a far cry from the traditional housewife role. But the question is, why has this change come about?

Housework is the bane of many a busy household who would rather spend their time doing something else. After a busy day in the office, maybe a stint in the gym, or playing with the kids, is there anything wrong with just sitting down?

Well, unless money isn’t an issue and diet isn’t a concern, the average household can’t afford a daily cleaner and meals out every night. So who does the cooking, cleaning and DIY? Is it gender specific? Should a woman be responsible for standing over the ironing board whilst a man is changing light bulbs and putting up shelves?

According to Michael Kitt of Yourwellness Magazine, communication is key. “Discuss and mutually agree who will do what, then stick to it as far as possible”. By doing this, domestic arguments can be bypassed and perceived inequality avoided."

The answer is wholly dependent on what roles the adults (and children) feel they want to take on in the household. If discussed in calm manner before resentment seeps in, chores can be distributed fairly to all parties concerned and as long as they’re adhered to, a happy household free of indignation can commence. If taking out the rubbish keeps slipping the mind, then maybe a rota can be devised to help out.
