    Aussie blokes make the worst husbands

    World's Worst Husbands Are Australians: Study

    Aussie blokes make the worst husbands

    Australian men make the worst husbands in the world because they loathe helping out with the housework, a British study claims.

    An economist from Oxford University found that women wanting to settle down were better off finding a bloke from Scandinavia, the United States or Britain than Australia.

    Study author Dr Almudena Sevilla-Sanz said that based on her study of 12 developed countries, men and women were both more likely to cohabit or marry if they believed their partner would help out with the household chores and childcare.

    But it appears that when it comes to finding a husband willing to help out, Australian women have a tough time.

    Dr Sevilla-Sanz's study ranked Australia as the least egalitarian society, making its men unattractive marriage partners because they were more unlikely to do household chores.
    Norway, Sweden, Great Britain, the US and Northern Ireland were judged to be the most egalitarian countries, making their men the most attractive marriage partners.

    Next were the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, New Zealand, Japan, Germany, Austria and Australia in last place.

    "In egalitarian countries you might, in principle, expect to see women preferring to remain single rather than face the prospect of spending more time doing household chores," Dr Sevilla-Sanz said.

    "However, this study shows that in egalitarian countries there is less social stigma attached to men doing what was traditionally women's work.

    "For instance, if paternity leave is the social norm, more men take it.

    "This leads to men in egalitarian societies taking on more of a domestic role so the likelihood of forming a harmonious household becomes greater, resulting in a higher proportion of couples setting up households in these countries."

    The study's findings were based on a survey of 13,500 men and women aged 20 to 45 from each of the 12 countries.

    Each was asked about their attitudes to gender, housework and childcare responsibilities.
    The study found that women living in less egalitarian countries were 20 to 50 per cent less likely to live with a man compared with women in more egalitarian societies.

    The study, titled Household Division of Labor and Cross-Country Differences in Household Formation Rates, is due to be published in the Journal of Population Economics.


    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Well, considering this is a Thai forum, it would be uninteresting to see where Thailand finishes.

    But of course, 'Catch 22'!!!!!

    Love that book/movie.

    I think the catch phrase for qualification in the study was "developed countries" also why China wasn't listed..

    Hey this is a big mistake and we really should apologise to the Aussie Men, and so should the Economist from Oxford who has shown an alarming lack of knowledge about relationships around the World.

    In the case of Australia the Economist obviously where interviewing the wrong persons in Aussie relationships, had the Economist got it right the story would have been completely different.







    Maehh he is the best, he cleans and cuts my hair, supervises when the baby's come out and sorts out all the injections and stuff to keep them free of sickness, takes care of all the meals, makes sure the green carpet is always kept in top trim, and never forgets to close the front door, maehh bless him, he is so afraid the little ones runs out on their own, no you could not find a better partner than an Aussie Man.



    Signed Mrs Maehh.

    Why get married and then help with the housework?
    It would be like buying a dog and then going out to bark at the postman myself.

    I know plenty of Aussie blokes who do the lions share of cooking, cleaning, washing, ironing and child care as well as looking after the yard.

    Aussie women of todays generation are often fat and lazy. Many dont even know how to cook a proper meal. They have become spoilt with blokes paying for everything and doing everything for them while they were courting. They leave home where Mummy did everything for them and expect the hubby to take over Mummys role. No wonder so few blokes come up to their expectations.
    The only thing some of these lazy selfish slags have got going for them is the power of the pouch, and they hold that to ransom in order to get their own way too. I know blokes who submit to this kind of pussy-whipping for their kids sake, because they know that if the marriage falls apart the court will give custody to the woman and she would be off trading her snatch for some other dumb fucker to wait on her.

    What ever happened to sexual equality? Just another PC thing that has been exploited to the enth degree by a bunch of professional victims.

    As for the poll results in Oz, I'm not surprised by the results as I am sure the results were swayed by a bunch of lard arse whinging moles who wonder why they cant find Mr Right.

    There, I feel much better now.

    The OP was a wind up as I found it humorous that the femi-nazis are now resorting to this type of propaganda to shame men into a subservient role in the family dynamic... The whole equalization of the genders has fouled up the roles men & women have been assigned for thousands of years... Men go out and kill the food to bring home to feed the family, while women take care of the home, children and her man...

    This little social experiement over the last 50 years is destroying the family and the fundamental aspects of societal norms... Prior to the equalization of the genders, divorce rates were not in the 50% range...

    Well thats one of the reasons I left the USA, I do nothing I do not want to, and as soon as I finish eating I am ran out of the kitchen so my wife can clean the kitchen as she is supposed to do, and as my first wife always did, but we were married in 1953, so that should explain something and also the fact that she was a Norskie.
