In the US we can't force women to do chores either. However, they seem to come to the realization very quickly that if they don't do them they'll soon be living in a house with 20 pizza boxes sitting in the corner and a sink with a 5 foot pile of crusty plates. Every guy in the States can thrive in this atmosphere; for some reason women cannot.
They do chores. Unfortunately, through some mystical - and as yet undetermined - means, when they decide to do chores they also force us to do chores.
Maybe it's time for us to go to an Italian court?.?.
