I think Dr Phil said it about SAHMs with three children when dealing with lazy husbands, WCM I'd have to agree when you compare it to a childless person or somebody who works and comes home with little/nothing to do with the housework and children.
I've also read that working mums work the equiv of 2 fulltime jobs as our traditional duties aren't like men's - they can't be done at our leisure (such as mowing the lawn on a Sunday morning), dinners need to be cooked daily etc.

I think it is equivilent to 2 full time jobs, but working mums are doing 2 full time jobs too. They work 40 hours a week then come home and work another 'shift' at home. Different but the same workload.

I'm still not earning much lol, always on night duty, cook the dinners and do the majority of cleaning. Not much changes.
I absolutely agree with Dr Phil when husbands complain that their wives are lazy or whatever and they have 3+ children who they are caring for day in and day out - if he's working a corporate 9-5 job sure it may be mentally draining at times, but he gets to sleep at night and clock off at 5 (note: I'm talking about the slackers in general, not all men - my DP doesn't clock off at 5).
