  • Me and my DH work and we both tend to the household... him more then me some weeks but I am in school full-time as well as working full-time out side of the home and he works from home. When I went back to work full-time I laid down the law and told him he was going to have to do more and he agreed. We worked out a plan and here we are. Sometimes he feels like he is doing everything and sometimes I do but we talk about it, we're a team and that is how we approach everything.

  • Because most guys think that is our job. Even if we have one outside of the home. But when they do things like watch the kids. Its babysitting.

  • This is a VERY good question that I don't know the answer too I used to have to come home by midnight or later and clean and wake up by 6 and do homework cuz hubby was too damn lazy to make sure it was actually getting done ugh! That's why I quit it was too much for me and now I need employment but hesitate to do so because I know what would happen

  • LOL. I ask that everyday! It is bloody unfair isn't it? So much for us being the weaker sex. They won't be able to handle all that responsibility.
