Looking for ways to keep your wife from straying? New research suggests you try emptying the dishwasher for once.

Women are more likely to cheat on men who don’t help with household chores, according to a major French study that surveyed 10,000 female users of the extra-marital dating site, Gleeden.

Roughly 73 percent of the women polled said they were driven to cheat because their partner wasn’t pulling his weight in terms of housework.

Gleeden, which launched in France but is now available in a range of countries, conducted the survey in an effort to discover the main factors behind female infidelity.  

Roughly 86 percent of survey participants claimed they were extremely frustrated by their partner’s habits of neglecting housework and 84 percent said the issue caused arguments.

This may prove to be a wake-up call for many French men, who were found to be generally reluctant when it comes to housework in a poll conducted by French statistics agency INSEE. The survey, conducted last year, found that women in France still complete two thirds of the chores in their households.

Although, if other reports are to be believed, it could be that French people of both sexes are simply looking for any excuse to stray from their marital beds. With no mention of housework in the survey, a 2014 Ifop poll reported that 55 percent of French men and 32 percent of French women are unfaithful and that extra-marital affairs are on the rise.  

Either way, gentlemen (from all corners of the globe), it’s probably not a bad idea to familiarize yourself with the toilet brush.
