Many more psychology experts suggest you should improve your sex life with shared childcare responsibilities. Their recommendations are not at all far-fetched if we were to consider the recent findings that they have made.
According to the Marital and Relationship Study conducted in 2006, partners who agree to equally share their home responsibilities are much more satisfied with their marriage, including their sexual lives. The research has shown that couples where mothers had to supervise 60% of children’s activity were the least satisfied with their marital statuses.
On the other hand, married men and women, who contributed more or less in the same manner to the education of their children confessed that they were happy with all aspects of their lives. Based on the answers they provided during the surveys, both these men and women were much more satisfied with their sexual lives than couples where only mothers took on childcare chores.
As for men, researchers have stated that there was no significant change between the various categories of male respondents in the study group. Both men who took care of their children and men who didn’t actively participate in the education of their children have reported the same level of sexual satisfaction.
The study has been conducted by analyzing the marriage lives of 487 couples with children. Participants in the study group have been randomly selected, but they all had low to moderate income levels. In addition, the wives in the group were all younger than 45 years old, according to researchers’ declaration.
605 couples have been interviewed for the current study, but only the aforementioned 487 pairs have provided correct answers that could be taken into account. The findings of the experiment were presented by Dr. Daniel Carlson, the leader of the study and professor at the Georgia State University during the recent conference of the American Sociological Association.
According to Carlson, additional researches have to be conducted in order to identify the factors that cause couples to be sexually more satisfied when sharing childcare chores. Prof Sir Cary Cooper from the Manchester Business School thinks the merits belong to the “new man”.
In his opinion, women who have married a “new man” are much more satisfied with their marriages because this type of partner is willing to invest more in all aspects of their relationship not just in childcare. Moreover, some women appear to be much more attracted by men who carry out activities that are not normally specific for them, such as vacuuming or cooking.
