7,000 Women Surveyed And The Results Are In: Husbands Cause Women More Stress Than Their Children

By Nadine / lundi 5 mars 2018 10:00
The average new family has two kids and a baby. And by baby, we mean the husband. FML.

We’re not sure what’s been going on with mainstream media lately that’s been giving women the validation that they have so been longing, but ladies, your time has come. Apart from a study recently revealing that menstrual cramps can be as painful as a heart attack, a survey done by Today just came out stating that husbands cause more stress for women than their children.

According to Providr, 7,000 moms were surveyed and 46% of those moms said that their husbands actually caused them more stress than their kids.

Those are some numbers! Get it together, men.

75% of the women who were surveyed said that the reason they’re stressed is because of a lack of support from their husbands when it comes to parenting and other household duties.

But the study didn’t end there! Researchers also found that later in life if wife passes away, the husband’s health tends to go downhill, while the same situation is likely not to have the same effect on women. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. When a husband passes away later on in life the wife actually tends to become healthier and shows improvement in depression and stress.

The pure savagry.

The study speculates that the reason for this is because male partners relied much more their female partners, but that street just does not seem to go both ways.

In short: men, we love you, but help your ladies out a bit, would ya?

A not really well known organization named Healthy Holistic Living interviewed married moms and found out 46% are mainly stressed by their husbands, so 54 % should be mainly stressed by their children. Numbers around 50/50 are to be expected, but why did no one ask the husbands? Why does this so-called study suggest, that mothers and father should share parenting duties but only mothers should be responsible for disciplining and rewards? Portraying women as poor victims based on questionable surveys with questionable results by questionable organizations is typical mainstream media but it’s also dishonest nonsense. And something for Nadine: Not 75% of women said the lack of support from their husbands is the main reason for stress. These 75% said they are doing most of the household chores, which is a typical result for stay-at-home moms. Only 1 out of 5 women said the lack of support was a major source of stress and again no one asked the fathers whether they are stressed from their job or not.

When the husband beats cancer, the wife comes to every hospital visit, and the couple stays married.
When the wife beats cancer, husband has rarely accompanied her to appointments, and there's usually a divorce.

Tell that to my dad who did everything he could while my mom was in the hospital with cancer. We tried to visit as often as possible while he also had to take care of 3 kids, go to work and run a household.

....Which is what causes the stress. Take it easy buddy, there's no feminist agenda here. The article was purely for laughs.

Hate to tell ya, but 7000 isn't much. There's 7-8 BILLION humans living on this planet atm. so if we were to say that half of them were female and half of the females were adult and half of the adults were married mothers then that would still be 1 billion. That's over 100.000 times as much as were interviewed when taking this survey. Using it to make a general statement is not all that credible. That's like saying everyone thinks fml is shit because this one random dickhead said it, ao everyone has to think it. It doesn't make sense!

As a married man with kids I can also relate to this. I think it's more about the marriage or relationship dynamic than a man vs woman thing, and I imagine upbringing also plays a role. I was brought up helping my parents around the house and being self sufficient with laundry etc whereas my wife wasn't - so guess who has the joy of doing most of the house work!

To everyone going "but my dad"/"but me and my wife"/"not all men"

yeah, yeah, we know. Individually there are men who do housework.

But we all know that 80% of our married, female relatives, friends, acquaintances, co-workers etc. are not just wives and mums but family managers. She knows all doctor's appointments, knows everyone's entire wardrobe, schedules playdates and vacations, handles school appointments and family events like birthdays, Christmas, etc.
Kids naturally turn to mum first when they're hungry, tired, hurt, sad... (of course, it's why they have a mum, but it adds to the pile).

And when your whole life seems to revolve around making other people's life more comfortable so everybody can do their stuff without having to worry about time management and stupid menial preparations, that just sucks.
Yes women who want families are nurturing and caring, hopefully, but if Dad thinks he needs to be praised for occasionally taking out the trash and vacuuming once a weak, it just doesn't compare to the constant emotional labour women are doing that goes completely unnoticed.

So yeah, there's great husbands and dads out there.
But the general narrative is "mum makes sure everybody is happy and fed so she can be happy too." as if that was her only emotional need in life and that's just bullshit.
