Wives spend 7,920 minutes a year nagging their husbands about household chores, their drinking and their health.

This equals two-and-a-half hours of earbashing each week - which totals 11 hours a month or five-and-a-half days a year.

A study of more than 3,000 people carried out by health campaign group Everyman concluded the most common subject women nagged their partners about was not helping to tidy the home.

Other complaints included not helping to wash the dishes, drinking too much and not visiting the doctor to get checked out.


The majority of women were not ashamed about nagging, with 87 per cent admitting to giving their partner a hard time to get them to do something.

While most men said they would never admit it, 83 per cent surveyed said they often thought their partner was right to nag them.

Although nagging is often an unwelcome aspect of a relationship, the strategy appeared to be quite effective according to the results of the study.

Nearly half the men questioned said they 'gave in' after an hour if their partner carried on with the topic, while a further 21 per cent caved in after a couple of hours for the sake of having a 'quiet life'.
