  • I do!!
    My boyfriend does not understand that I do as much as im allowed to,
    and he still thinks Im not doing "enough".
    He expects me to do everything for him!! and its just so irritating!

  • I do but I also think i let more bother me than DH,for example he cans ee dishes in the sink and think nothing of it,I see dishes in the sink and think there is a load to be washed. If I ask him to do certain things and I need to be specific he will help.

  • Some days I get p'd of because he could do more, but most days he actually is quite good. I think I have "trained" him pretty good lmao

  • Sure there are things my hubby could help out with but doesn't and yes it irks me at times but then again I am not always helping him do what he does.. It's a 2 way street here, if you want more help from him then go help him do whatever he's up to and ask him to share in the responsibilities. My hubby is NOT allowed to touch laundry and I don't touch his tools. He does the dishes I dust and clean he takes care of our vehicles and landscaping and I keep our yard pretty and garden weeded. We try to share some projects to like he's building a shop and I help with the little things like staining wood and cleaning up the debris. It works for us I guess

  • Yes, I do get a little bent out of shape occasionally when my DH isn't pulling his weight around the house. I get that he works hard at a full time job, but there are some things that he just has to do around the house, such as changing light bulbs. Even with a chair, I can't reach them. Also, things that need fixing- I'm definitely not handy with most things. lol

  • always! He feels like it is his job to bring the money home and my job to take care of the house and kids by myself.. drives me nuts because he doesn't clean up after himself
