(Newser) – Live-in lovers are more likely to empty the dishwasher and take out the garbage than husbands, according to the latest research reported in Newsweek. In a study of 17,000 men, boyfriends reported doing more household chores than their married counterparts. And it gets better. Partners who share the chores have better sex lives. 

In fact, one is likely directly linked to the other. "If men are interested in keeping their sex life vibrant, they may help wash the dishes and vacuum every now and then," said the author of a book on husbands. But the study wasn't all good news for women. Regardless of how many chores men do, women still get stuck with the lion's share.
