Our goal is, taking the gender revolution as a reference, to explore whether the relative contribution to the economy of the household and to carry out the domestic tasks of the household are associated with the life satisfaction of adult Spanish women and men seaparately who live with a partner. For this purpose we use linear regression models to analyze the data from the pooled Spanish samples of the European Social Surveys of 2004 and 2010. In Spain there are two different situations defined by the different economic capacity of the household: in households without economic difficulties, g ender behaviors have a lower influence on levels of satisfaction with life; however, in those housholds with economic difficulties the more traditional gender profiles are associated with a greater male satisfaction, unlike in the female case.
