Women felt that they wanted their partners to do more of the women’s work but still keep doing the men’s work. 2) Communication or lack of caused stress and arguments between the couples interviewed. 3) Feelings this is the theme that answers the research question by detailing how the men and women felt by the divide in the household work 4) Changes there is currently a change taking place within the households and this is due to the current economic recession in Ireland.
