Austrian woman Renate Kogler has managed to balance her family budget - by renting out her husband to other women who don't have a man about the house.
But the offer from the woman, 28, from Graz, in Styria, Austria, is strictly limited to the things women really need a man for - fixing and repairing things around the house, or helping to lift and move things.
She said: "A lot of single women really miss a man when it comes to putting together furniture, gardening, doing repairs around the house. That sort of thing.
"My offer to rent out my husband Andreas is mainly targeted at single women, but also to those women whose men are not so handy around the house and with DIY."
She added: "When I was single I really missed having somebody to put my furniture together. I'm happy to share my man with others who are still stuck being single."
She said her husband, 34, was a real handy man to have around, and added that all those who have hired him so far for 20 GBP an hour have said they would come back for more.
