Row over household chores behind most marriage breakdowns.

London, January 21 ( ANI ): Couples argue more about cleaning, cooking and washing up than anything else except money, according to a survey.

In the survey of more than 2,000 adults by online takeaway firm Just Eat, nearly two-thirds admitted that they fight over chores at least once a week.

And one in five people said they know a couple who row regularly or have broken up over the issue, the Daily Mail reported.

Laziness about cooking, cleaning and other chores comes second only to bad personal hygiene in the list of reasons to break up with someone, the survey found.

When it comes to rows the most common cause, cited by 24 per cent, is money.

But second, blamed by nearly one in five (17 per cent), is deciding who cooks, does the washing up and tidies things away after meals.

Simon Purkis, a barrister specialising in family litigation at Pump Court Chambers, said that the first weeks of the New Year typically see record numbers of individuals wanting to file for divorce and that a surprisingly high proportion of such complaints arise from relatively trivial domestic issues.
