It doesn't matter if you work outside the home or not(in my opinion)...my belief is housework should be shared. Because being a mom IS a full time job. Some women are happy doing all the work, it makes them feel fulfilled and being the "dutiful wife" is okay for them. That's fine, no judgment here from me, whatever works for them.
However, we do just as much(if not more) than our husbands do some days, and I don't think that they should use the crutch "i work 40-60 hours a week..blah blah blah" to get out of helping a little bit. They can wash a dish, they can sweep a floor. Simple things. I'm blessed in the fact that my SO does help me if I ask him to and once in a blue moon will just help on his own without complaint. He has his moments, but i am not perfect person either. :)
Our job is never-ending, theirs ends at 5p.m(or whatever time the work clock stops). He should help if you need it, no questions asked.JMO.
