Arguing over household chores is a common pastime experienced by couples in Florida and everywhere else. According to research, money and communication may be the two factors that determine whether such squabbles result in a couple ending their relationship. The link between spending money on household chores and the success of a relationship was explored by a study conducted by Harvard Business School.
By outsourcing tasks such as cleaning the house or doing laundry, people had more time to spend with their families. They also had lower levels of stress because they weren't trying to clean something while also dealing with a child or being late for work. A 2017 study from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that couples who spent $100 to $200 on such services were happier. Of course, for some couples, hiring help isn't an affordable option.
