This research is intended to understand the housework performance of husbands that live away from their family and the human resources that may have effects while they do the housework. The research has been done by the interviews with twelve selected males who are married and live away from their family. The results are as follows:First, the amount of time that the interviewees spend on the housework is less than thirty minutes a day. As for the clothing life area, they seem to depend on washers, cleaners and their wives for their laundry, except for six interviewees that wash their socks by hands. As for their food life area, they either have quick breakfast or do not have breakfast, and they go to a restaurant more than twice a day. Therefore, they tend to depend on services, and they only make the bed and clean the house.Second, affective components and cognitive components are the factors that make their housework difficult while physical components do not have any great effect. These two components have a great deal of effect on the interviewees' clothing related housework and food related housework.
