My husband works very hard and he will still do the dishes every single night. I will tell him I will be glad to do them , but he will continue with doing them. LOL... Anyone else????

  • SO is military. He thinks women have no clue how to clean so Mr Clean Freak does dishes, washes clothes, scrubs toilets and tubs....gotta love a man who wants it done right so he does it himself!

  • We both work full time and yes, my DH does wash dishes- and likes it!!! When I asked him why, he says it's to blow off steam and "think" about things. So, I know when he's in need of thought therapy, when he's doing the dishes!(LOL).

  • My husband believes my job as a SAHM is harder than his. Ha! He works really hard for us - many hours a week, but at a desk. He know what it is like to try to do something with a toddler at your feet. He would rather I spend the extra time with her. He splits the household chores with me 50/50. I never have to ask (expect about the trash). Suck it up and enjoy it! :)

  • i know that he would do them and does not mind but I have OCD and I just do not trust anyone else to wash mine or my sons dishes to my standards. I refuse to use dishwashers just for this reason!!

  • My husband now works 2 jobs, and he still helps with the dishes (he's getting alot better at it) and he does the laundry. He helps with the kids, too. He's nice! I have a part time job. I do everything else.
