    Meaning of "duvet"

    Hey all,
    I came across a sentence in my Cambridge Student's Book:

    Europe’s legion of working women who long for a caring ‘new man’ to share their duvet and the household chores would be ill-advised to start searching in the United Kingdom.

    What does "share their duvet" mean here? Does it mean "share their bed" or something else?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes. A duvet is a soft quilt filled with down, feathers, or a synthetic fiber spread over a bed (over a bedsheet, or bedsheet and a blanket) to give additonal warmth.
