  • Because we can. Sure we may break down or need a break to just drive or take a nap but we can handle anything and everything. Everyone gets overwhelmed at times, but think about it - no matter what, we always make it through.

  • Because (as the others have said) we can. Wouldn't it offend you more if he thought you couldnt handle anything?

  • once you learn you cannot then you'll be a better spouse. What's the point of having a mate if you are going to do everything?

  • Some men are helpless and can't do anything so they think some women could do everything. Most women can some can't.

  • I don't handle everything, just the majority. In my home, in my family, it is my job as the wife and mother to make sure that - the house is clean and comfy, everyone has clean clothes to wear, good, healthy food to eat, etc. I make sure the bills are paid, I make sure the kids have school supplies, I make the dr. and dentist appointments. We both work, but most of the time he is working 2 jobs - twice as hard to make sure that I have the money to buy groceries and pay the bills and take care of the kids. I try my damnest to make his life just a little easier.

  • Because we have shown them that we can. We just keep doing and giving and helping..until we have nothing left......it's really our own faults.
