Wives spend 7,920 minutes a year nagging their husbands about household chores, their drinking and their health.Nagging does seem to work, however, as most men will agree to do almost anything to get the womenfolk to shut their pieholes. Peace at any cost, so to speak.
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.
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'.
