Here’s a good excuse to be a SAHM.

Married men earn more than bachelors so long as their wives stay at home doing the housework, according to a report Wednesday from Britain’s Institute for Social and Economic Research (ISER).

Academics Elena Bardasi and Mark Taylor found that a married man whose wife does not go out to work but is primarily responsible for the cooking and cleaning earns about 3 percent more than comparably employed single men.

But that wage premium disappears if wives go out to work themselves or don’t do most of the housework.

I think I’ll be using that as evidence for my case once I am married. 😀

One thought on “Here’s a good excuse to be a SAHM.

  1. Maybe that’s because they have to work harder to support their families. After all, if the wife’s not workin’ then there needs to be more income.

    See, lots of explanations. 😛

    Or maybe they work more because they don’t want to come home to a nagging housewife!!

    Wow, I am such a freak. A cynical, cynical freak. Just kidding, I love you! 🙂
