Who works more? You or him?

 A recent study finds women do more work than men. Men work longer hours, but women do more actual work because they work at home as well.

Do you work more, or does he?

There is no doubt about it,my husband works more.Sure I'm always on the go but what he does (for 14+ hours a day) is WAY more work than I do in a week.But he'd be the first to say that he wouldn't want to do what I do,lol (I'm a SAHM)

its actually about equal.  i do a lot of multitasking so i get more done than he does, but i really don't work any harder than he does.

I think it's hard to compare the work DH and I do. He puts in full-time hours at a desk job and does help around the house sometimes. I'm a SAHM of two small kids and the baby won't nap unless he's touching me (whether it's while nursing or being in a carrier).

His job is more physically demanding.
