Remote Work Makes For Happier Couples

According to recent research, married people that work from home are reportedly happier than they were working in an office-setting, and it is all in how the household chores are divvied up, according to researchers.

Although no such research has been conducted concerning the love lives of single remote workers, researchers found that married remote workers were happier because the spouse working from home tended to do more household chores.

“Since the turn of the century, teleworking has been helping to reduce social inequalities by rebalancing domestic duties in the UK,” said Dr. Eleftherios Giovanis from Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK. “When men work from home, they tend to help more around the house. This increases the value that women place on their own wellbeing and frees them to work more themselves.”
