A new study shows that on average, a woman married to a man spends 32 more minutes per day on housework than her single mom counterparts. Read that sentence again and let it sink in.
The reason for the difference is enlightening. Married women place higher expectations on themselves to have a cleaner house or more elaborate meals. Single moms by necessity, let go of unrealistic expectations and get on average 10 minutes more to themselves and 13 minutes more sleep each day.
So today, if you are a single mom, give yourself a big pat on the back. You are rocking it. If you are married, channel your inner single mom. What can you let go of?
