Split chores or do you do all of it. My husband is very old fashioned as in he provides the money and the roof over my house and I make it a home. As for chores though he does dishes occasionally but the hone is my pride.and jot.

So where is the divide if power with you?

My Husband is the same way. He makes the money. I take care of the house. He does clean the yard though. This is the way i like it to be also. It's my job to clean and all that wify stuff. I do not work so what else is there to do??

I maintain the inside of the home and we both maintain the outside. I like it this way. When I clean and take care of the inside its cleaned my way and smells a certain way and etc.

I take care of the house for the most part. My children also have chores, but my husband is not above helping me, if I need it.

 Todd picks up after himself all the time and does odd and ends things around here and offers to do more (and just does it completely if I'm sick or something) I had to keep stopping him over and over again when we first got together bc he was use to being an awesome single dad and doing everything and once we got together since he sacrifices to be our sole provider so I can be at home even now that our kids are grown I WANT TO do all the work at home its the least I can do. I enjoy making our home welcoming, relaxing, beautiful and inviting for him to come home to. He deserves that.

It's a 3/4 (me) to 1/4 (him) ratio on housework

I'd prefer more of an even split-but since he works outside the house I don't complain. Just wish he'd be more consistent when he does help.

Right now, he works, brings home the bacon, I cook, said bacon, and have a clean house for him to come home to, if I had a job though, the chores would be divided, but I'd probably end up doing most of the chores, because he can't cook, and I have a thing about dishes and just cleaning in general. If I don't clean it myself, I don't feel like its cleaned, even though I know someone cleaned it, I just don't feel like its clean if I don't clean it.

My husband will do more than his fair share of what needs to be done in the house.  This is just the way he has been since we have been together and that is going on 20 years now.  We each have things we dislike and since they are different for both of us it works out great!
