In 1972 Judy Syfers wrote an essay for Ms. Magazine called "I Want a Wife." It appears that little has changed - according to this article from the New York Times, working moms want someone to help with housework, childcare, and all the to-dos that go into keeping a family and household running. They want a wife.
Here's both a startling and not-so-surprising statistic from the article:
According to 2006 survey data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in five men engages in some kind of housework on an average day, while more than half of women do.
And while many husbands do help around the house and take part in major household decisions, few of us can deny that most of the burden is on our shoulders.
