  • I make him a list! He feels a sense of accomplishment when he can check off things.

  • Praise him when he does them, don't belittle him when they aren't done "good enough."

  • A constent struggle for me, but I go on strike as well. If he doesnt do something in a timely manor when I ask him to, his dinner wont be ready the next day and I'll stop cleaning house all together. Men can be so selfish. I refuse to "reward: him for doing his JOB, he is a grown man not a puppy!

  • Get diagnosed with a serious cardiac condition. And giving him sex more often helps too. He knows I can't keep up due to my heart, but when he's tired too, we'll make deals - if he does ___ chore I'll give him sex, or something like that - works better if we're in a dry spell, of course.

  • I'll trade ya? Sometimes my husband does TOO much :( Like putting more laundry in the washer than what was asked of him (he ended up putting in stained clothes w/o putting spray on them first...now they are trash clothes :/)

    Have you ASKED him to help out more?
