How to understand this sentence?

This is one major historical reason why, to this very day, men tend to do extremely little in the way of useful housework.

Why use this two commas? And why "why" before a comma? Should why connect a complete sentence?

Heres what my English teacher tells me. Take out the words in between the commas. Is it still a sentance(yes). It is simply to add more details.

Crispy means that the sentence without the stuff in between the commas is still a good sentence. Without the "why" it would not work.
