Many mums find their husbands more stressful to deal with than their own children, new research has found.
According to a study by Today US, a staggering 46 per cent of mums admitted their husbands were a bigger source of stress than kids.
The survey looked at 7000 American women, who reported their average stress level was 8.5 out of ten.
While husbands certainly contribute to the chaos, the mothers also said day-to-day chores, parenting and work were also big factors.
'A 7-year-old is going to be a 7-year-old. But a 35-year-old acting like a 7-year-old is more stressful, because they should know better,' said one mother.
The mums complained that the fathers of their children often act more like 'big kids' than equal partners.
'Mum stress is fundamentally different than dad stress, women say, and the inability to see eye-to-eye with a partner can lead to, you guessed it, more stress,' the report reads.
'Even though I have a committed spouse, I still feel like all the pressure is on ME to get everything done. I work just as many hours as my husband does, but yet I do all the scheduling,' explained one anonymous woman.
However, while married mothers reported a worrying amount of stress, single mothers were found to be the most affected.
Mums struggling to raise children on their own reported the highest levels of stress in the survey.
