abstract
This study revealed the prevailing stereotypes concerning the domestic affairs and also examined their relationships with actual practices. In the first survey, 381 unmarried college students classified 41 house duties to be taken care of by either husband or wife. As to the stereotypic assignment based on their own "social standards". 19 duties were classified as wives jobs, including "balancing the house budget books" and "deciding things to have at dinner". Nine duties were classified as husbands' jobs including "representing the family at ceremony" and "fixing broken electronic equipments". Male students indicated that they would like to share more domestic duties than socially expected when they got married, while female students indicated that they intended to abandon the distinction between husbands' job and wives' job when they got married.

In the second survey, 259 married men and women, ranging from at their 20s to 50s, answered to the identical questionnaire used in the first study. Married couple tended to regard more duties as wives' jobs than college students, and wives actually took care of more duties than those expected by college students when they get married. In those couples whose wives were employed and/or those got married over 31 years, husbands tended to, share more domestic duties.
