Chinese Mall Opens “Husband Nursery” Where Men Can Relax While Wives Shop

There are few things that men hate more than going on long shopping sprees with their wives or girlfriends, so one Chinese mall has come up with the “husband nursery”, a special place where guys can kick back and relax while their better halves shop till they drop.

Just as mothers drop their young kids at the nursery to be looked after while they tend to their daily business, so to can wives and girlfriends leave their male partners at the husband nursery located on the third floor of the newly-opened Vanke Mall in the Minhang district of Shanghai. Instead of having to put up with their miserable-looking faces as they follow them around through dozens of shops, women can leave guys in this special room to kill time by watching TV, reading magazines, sitting in a massage chair or taking a nap in of the comfortable armchairs.


Some of you will argue that men don’t have to go shopping with their spouses if they don’t want to – but we all know that’s not true – or that malls already have relaxation spaces like bars and cafes, but the husband nursery has the advantage of being absolutely free. And since it’s aimed exclusively at husbands who hate long shopping sprees with their wives, it gives visitors to socialize and cry on each others’ shoulders.
It’s not clear if the husband nursery has Wi-Fi or if the television has cable or simply shows a loop of products available in the mall (that would be one cruel joke), but it has definitely been drawing a lot of attention online. Most people love the idea, although there are also those who see it as unnecessary. The latter are probably single.
A UK survey found that the average man gets bored after 26 minutes of shopping and that 80% of guys hate shopping with their partners, with 45% of them avoiding it at all costs.
