Moms Everywhere Are Pissed Off

More than 1,000 women are steaming mad at their hubbies. Read on to find out why.

Sure your husband ticks you off sometimes but the reassuring news is, you're not alone: According to the results of a new poll from Parenting.com, today's American home life looks less "Leave it to Beaver" and more "Married with Children."

What's the problem? Women everywhere are pissed off at the unequal parental roles they've been ascribed to, the lack of time they have for themselves, and their husband's "cluelessness" when it comes to child-rearing.

Here are some gripes from these frustrated wives:

· 46% "get irate with their husbands once a week or more." (Those with kids younger than 1 years old are likely to be mad 54% of the time. About half describe their anger as intense but passing while 1 in 10 say it's "deep and long-lasting.")

· 44% are "peeved" that their partners "often don't notice what needs to be done around the house or with the kids," -- a percentage that rises to 54% among mothers with three or more children.

· 40% say they "are also angry that their husbands seem clueless about the best way to take care of kids."

· 4% "are mad that Dad can't multitask." Among those with three or more children, the anger rises to 46%.

· 31% say they get little or no "help" from their husbands with chores. In fact, many moms feel their husbands create work for them.

· 3% say their husbands "aren't shouldering equal responsibility and are less concerned than they are about their children's basic needs, like nutrition and clothing." For mothers of three or more children that number rises to 41%.

· Nearly one-third "complain that parenthood has changed their lives more than their husbands."

· One-quarter feel they spend "more mental energy on parenting than dads do."

· 50% feel "their husbands get more time for themselves. The lack of time off is a huge issue for the moms carrying the most anger. More than 60% of the moms who get mad weekly -- and almost three-quarters of those who are angry every day -- feel this way."

Tell us---how well can you relate to these survey results?

this is why i never want to be married.. I pity those people that felt societies pressure to somehow get married and that will make your life complete.. I have to laugh at that .. I can’t imagine coming home to the same nagging wife, pretending I’m in love and just existing in life while trying to avoid confrontation with a wife. (Which is manifested by hanging out with friends, being a workaholic or just plain avoiding you all together and just watching t.v.)… Thinking and wishing i was having sex with someone else …getting bored with the same thing over and over again no matter what lingerie or wig they wear..If you are married you should be thankful you have some guy willing to monetarily support you and your family/put up with your menstrual cycles and all the nagging……hookers and maids are cheaper and easier to deal with!!! What makes women think they are so special that they need to live like Disney inspired love 24/7? When in the history of civilization has any of this been any different for the plight of women? in fact its probably better with the advent of t.v. and video games so it can babysit the kids they are supposedly having such a hard time raising….My advice is to stay single, have sex with who you want when you want and have a good laugh at the suckers that bought into the lie of marriage….that’s from someone who never has been or wants to get married ..life’s to short to waste on this b.s.

Reading stuff like this makes me realize my wife is great. I am a stay at home dad, and I do all the chores—all of them. Laundry, dishes, mopping and mowing the lawn etc. The thing is I should cause I am home and I don’t whine and complain like many of you ladies do. Get over it, none of us SAHDs act anything like you whiney ladies do.
