  • We split it all. I generally pay bills..but it isn't that he can't or doesn't know what is going on with them. The only shopping I do the majority of is groceries. All other we split. He is just as likely to throw a load of clothes in or check homework as I am. Although in homework, generally I take all history, Soc. Studies and EWnglish, He doea all Math and Geography..we fight over who gets to help with science :)

  • Me for all of the above. DH does take care of all the yardwork, and he works more hours than I do (we own our own business), so I am fine with shouldering most or all of the household responsibilities. He does help out if I ask him to with something specific, like stopping at the store for bread on his way home. For the most part, it's a good arrangement for us.

  • me me me me me me me. he helps with #1 though. and he earns most of the household income so that helps with money. putting a pizza in the oven on the nights I work is him helping with cooking.

  • Childcare? Both of us.

    Shopping? Mostly me, but sometimes him.

    Cleaning? Mostly him, but I do my part.

    Cooking? Both of us.

    Money? Both of us, although I tend to be the one who actually pays the bills...

    Planning social life? No one, we're mostly home bodies, our social life is mostly online.

    Kid's homework? Don't have any yet.
