Men can reduce chances of divorce by helping their wives in household chores, a new survey has found.
A study of 3,500 British couples, conducted by the London School of Economics, had found that divorce rates were lower when husbands did household work, such as shopping and childcare.
Also, a lot of New York women insist, like their British counterparts, that men who do household work are hot.
Kimberly Howard, a 26-year-old art director from Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, says she gets turned on when she sees her partner cooking in the kitchen.
"My boyfriend is a super cleaner. Not only does he clean, but he cooks. Am I turned on by it? Of course. He's taking charge, he's taking responsibility. And that's hot," the New York Daily News quoted Howard, as saying.
She added: "It's him taking care of me. This is sexy, and special."
Stefanie Shuman of Astoria, who works at a Manhattan ad agency and lives with boyfriend Jordan Schwartz, 27, feels the same.
She said: "The other day I asked him to clean while I was at work. He texted me later that afternoon to say he actually enjoyed Swiffering. I swooned.Another day, he grocery-shopped. I have high hopes for our relationship.
"It's really reassuring that he enjoys taking care of our home. I was elated. You get that smile, then a sigh that comes with it."
