I wonder because I work at home, he works at home. I do everything! He works at home. I take care of the kids, doctors, ect. He works at home. I have said things, asked him to keep the dishes up. He doesn't, I get mad, he gets mad. Almost makes more sense for me to shut up and not say anything. I know he is lazy, but come on!Answer Question

Yes, we're 50/50 most of the time...but there are times when my husband does more and times when I do more! Basically, we just do what needs to be done when we see it needs it! If the dishes need to be washed or laundry is piling up, or some other mess needs to be cleaned up, instead of walking by it, we agree to just address it on the spot--it makes it so much easier for everyone, and only take a minute if we stay on top of things--as opposed to spendign hours tidying up. We're also teaching our children to clean up after themselves too (age appropriate), such as putting their clean clothes away, pickign up their toys, throwing away wrappers or picking up crumbs when they're done with them.
I think it helps that my husband lived on his own for 15 years prior to our getting married.

We are 50/50. We both work and we share the household chores and child rearing.
