Married? Your husband may add 7 hours of housework to your week

Blame the messy house on your husband (if you don't already). From Yahoo News:

"A new study from the University of Michigan shows that having a husband creates an extra seven hours of extra housework a week for women. But a wife saves her husband from an hour of chores around the house each week."

What!?!?!? Shouldn't a party of two entail less household responsibility? Apparently not:

"The researchers studied diaries to assess how people spent their time and questioned men and women about how much time they spend cooking, cleaning and doing basic work around the house.

They found that young single women did the least amount of housework, at about 12 hours a week. Married women in their 60 and 70s did nearly twice that amount, while women with more than three children spent 28 hours a week cleaning, cooking and washing."

Don't throw your messy roommate out yet though. Here's the silver lining: Per the San Francisco Chronicle, married people have more sex. Diiirrrtttty sex...
