  • no, i usually do all the chores. dh doesnt ask me to do anything bc i do it already. occasionally i ask him to do dishes at night, and i feel like im asking a lot, even though it really isnt.

  • This drives me crazy! He is always reminding me to do laundry. I don't like to do laundry, but I do it every day and yet he will call me from work to tell me to be sure and put a load of towels in or whatever. I don't know why he even cares. It's not like he ever does laundry or anything else. Most of the time I have already don the laundry and it is folded and put away by the time he calls and it's always done before he gets home. I don't ever feel guilty about it, just irritated that he nags me about it. I am not a 5 year old, I am his wife.

  • YA my SO will do that too... I just tell him if he wants it done then do it himself... He is the messy one just throwing clothes everywhere, not washing his dishes, and YES peeing on the toilet seat! I'm not ur mom, I'm not going to clean up after you buddy lol

  • Of course he doesn't. Why on earth would my husband have to ask me to do chores? I know what has to be done and I do it. He's not my parent and he doesn't treat me like a child.

  • I do all the chore around the house as it DH would never ask me to do something. I occasionally ask him for help and he's more than willing.

  • I work two jobs that add up to over 60 hours a week. My husband is a SAHD. Does he ask me to do chores? Oh you betcha he does, and I do them even when I'm too tired to think because we are a team. There's no guilt, it's all about being functionally useful and living up to potential.
