CLEANING TOILET WITH TOILET BRUSH

You might want to start equally dividing your housework with your partner. A court in China has set a new precedent that involved a man paying his ex over $7,000 for all the housework she did in the marriage!

The court ruled that the now ex-wife should be compensated for the five years of housework she did around their home without the husband doing anything. She won $7,700 in compensation.

Apparently this ruling is the first of its kind under China's new civil code, that is aimed to better protect the rights of individuals.

Will this go global?

Time to start doing a more equal share of the chores.
