  • I do pretty much everything around the house. I am a SAHM and DH is military. DH and I share bath time because it's just a tradition for us to bathe the kids and play with them together while they are in the tub, But that and the trash (when he remembers to do it) is pretty much the extent of what he does around here. I don't mind as much anymore since I am staying at home.. but back when I was working full time I still took care of the house and kids as well. Let's face it ladies.. men really are the weaker sex lol If we didn't do these things, they would never get done

  • I do everything. Sometimes he mows the lawn. But he works and I don't-ish.

  • We share equal duties. Dishes is not women's work neither is mowing the yard. When we notice something has not been done, we just jump in and do it.

  • I think I let the man slide to much too. He works 6-6 though.. so I don`t ask too much. On his days off I don`t hesitate to ask him for help. If I don`t ask then he won`t do too much. He also likes hunting and deer season is over thank goodness.. but that is a whole other topic... lol

  • I think that it had a lot to do with the fact that he has lived on his own for 3 years so he knows what needs to be done. We have a wonderful relationship where I don't have to worry about my needs since he does that and he doesn't worry about his needs since I do that...
    It took many years to get here and many failed relationships so I have done my time.

  • I do just about everything in regards to parenting and cleaning. I also do all paperwork and bill paying. He takes the garbage to the curb and checks the fluids on the car. I work part time from home and he works full time outside the home. I wish he would help more I feel like I'm drowning in all the work that is produced from raising 5 kids.
