I have lots of friends who are married, or who are in long term relationships, and in their households they share out equally the household chores.
Both of them go to work everyday, both of them are earning.
But the extraordinarily low number of marriages between these females and their Czech partners remain.
They originally met in London, while Ales was living there in political exile.
She tells me that Ales has always been particularly fascinated by England.
First, and perhaps most fiendishly is the language barrier between a Czech and a non-Czech, regardless of gender.
Dan and Dana Smith seem to have established a good system.
This is still an issue." The majority of mixed nationality couples I quizzed said that household chores weren't such a sticking point for them, and that they normally shared out the housework 50-50.
But many did agree with Dinah more generally, citing Czech males as having a relatively conservative attitude towards home life.
They alternate Czech speaking weeks with English speaking weeks, and can converse in each other's languages fluently.
But even then, Dan tells me that speaking different first languages does remain a problem; "It inhibits communication on a deeper level sometimes, it can.
But then under Communism it was quite common for the woman to do all the housework, and all the cooking, and hold a job, while often men had very difficult manual jobs, and were exhausted by the time they came home.
I think that has caused somewhat of a delay in the movement to have housework and cooking shared.
She is particularly interested in the very unbalanced numbers of Czech men and women married to foreigners, and has published numerous articles on the subject.
