  • No, my husband doesn't complain about such things. He is easy to please as far as meals, and if the place is messy enough for him to comment on he realizes there is a good reason.

  • My hubby may not like it sometimes, but he's figured out that it's all in the wording and tone.. but he's seen my 3 yr old destroy the house in a matter of moments so he knows I clean a lot more than it looks like.

  • No way! I was just in the hospital for only 2 days and he told me he didnt know how I did it! (We have 3 kids, a 4yr old, 2yr old and a 6mo old) He told me he had a whole new found of respect for me LOL. He really knows that I have a lot to do but I still seem to keep it all together for him when I expect him home to have a clean house and a nice dinner ready for him!

  • Absolutely! And why shouldn't he? But I would be more annoyed at myself if it happened. I was a sahm for 15 years.

  • I keep the house clean...there is the occasional mess but I am a neat freak. I dont' always cook but he has no problem fending for himself. Having said that, I think it has some to do with how they are raised. My husband was taught to help out etc. while my brother was shown that the women takes care of the house and cooking. I do however understand that a man could have the right to be upset if his wife doesn't go to work and he does coming home to a messy house EVERYDAY. That would bother me if he stayed at home and I worked. But maybe it's not really that at all. Maybe it is something at work he is frustrated with and he just vents it by expressing annoyance with those things.
