Study Show Women Spend 3 Years of Their Lives Cooking

Who Cooks More — You or Your Partner?

Families would go hungry — or eat out a whole lot more — if it weren't for women. According to a new UK study, women make 75 percent of family meals and on average spend three years of their adult lives cooking. If that sounds like a lot, note that women spent twice as much time cooking 50 years ago.

The average man, on the other hand, spends only a year and a half making meals. Men should consider cooking more, since sharing housework is the third most important factor in a happy marriage. Who wears the chef hat in your household?
