Does he ever pitch in around the house?

 When you're sick or tired or just don't really feel like doing much, does your SO step in and help do things around the house? Will he make dinner, do dishes, wash clothes, etc.?

If you're really, really sick, will he stay home from work to take care of you?

 I do not ask him to stay home, but then again I don't get sick that often. He does things around the house all the time, without me being sick. He loves a clean house as much as I do :)

No. He helps with the kids but that other stuff, nope.

Yes, if I'm sick or too tired he'll help out.  If I needed him to stay home he would but thankfully it's never come to that.

Of course he does but we split things anyway so obviously if one of us is ill the other will do more

I am a SAHM so I do a majority of the housework, but he is happy to help if I ask him to. He also takes care of the garage, the cars, and the yard.

HA!  lol 

My dh works out of town mon-fri,  the housework is on me.  When he is home on the weekend and I have to work (I do work FT), he will clean the house, do his work  laundry ,and ORDER OUT for dinner for him and the kids lol

If i am here, No he isn't going to be pitching in to clean,because I want him relaxing on his days off. Its a ME thing to take care of everything..its just how I am.  If I need help, and I ask, he will most definitely pitch in a helping hand with the household chores.

and IF I ever got REALLY REALLY ill (hasnt happened), I can totally see him taking a day to take care of me.. IF I was like soooooooooooooooo sick that I needed someone to care for me.

Sometimes, but he does his share by taking care of the kids.

Yes, he will help when I need it not matter if I'm sick or not. The only time he stay's home work when I'm sick, is when I ask him too. Which has been a long time. Like a few years.
