Description: This paper examines the gendered domestic division of labor and men's attitudes regarding gender roles. It focuses on a potential catalyst for changing gender attitudes: bachelorhood. Because social conditions increasingly delay heterosexual men's movement toward marriage, it is important to consider the significance of the period between childhood and marriage. Using the NLSY, we find that the longer a man lives independently-outside his parents' home and institutional settings (e.g., college dorms), and not married or cohabiting-the less traditional his attitudes about gender. Specifically, we find that the longer a man lives independently, the more likely he is to agree that men should share housework, and the less likely he is to think that a woman's place is in the home.
