The Wall Street Journal recently published an interesting article, Why Mom’s Time is Different Than Dad’s Time, by Jennifer Senior, the author of a soon-to-be published book, “All Joy and No Fun: The Paradox of Modern Parenthood.” Her article references a study that indicates that men and women — husbands and wives — work roughly the same number of hours per week. Men work more paid hours and women work more unpaid hours, but at the end of the week, everyone has punched the clock for a similar amount of time.
Yet, says Senior, women are still cranky about this because they believe men don’t do their share of the household tasks. She makes no mention of the idea that women should pick up more paid hours to compensate, or to allow their husbands to work less. Nope, it’s just about hubby working more so that the wife feels better.
