Alarming statistics: Women nag husbands 8,000 minutes a year

Although some women may gripe about their husbands being a nag, a new study says the reality is it's the fair sex which spends 7,920 minutes a year nagging their hubbies about household work, drinking and their health.

And, 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, according to the study which is based on a survey of 3,000 people carried out by health campaign group Everyman.

The survey concluded the most common subject women nagged their partners about was not helping to tidy the home. Other complaints included not helping to wash 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, the 'Daily Mail' reported.
