My neighbor makes her husband wash his own clothes, weird or not weird?

  My neighbor and her husband have been together for about 9 years now, they have one four year old daughter together. She recently told me she refuses to wash her husbands clothes and makes him do it, even before their daughter was born this is how it was done.  Weird or not? Edit: I ask because this is the first time I have even heard of this honestly, usually our clothes go in together and we both do them at times. Edit 2:I never once said this was some kind of rule or that the woman is supposed to wash his clothes jeez. I just find it odd only because she absolutely refuses to do so.

I don't think it's weird.  I actually have several friends who do the same thing.  I don't...though I can't say I haven't considered it, lol.

I don't think its too weird ....he is a grown man after all , and is capable of washing his own clothing.

there may also be a back story to that as well...like , does he like his clothes done a certain way?...

Personally , i do all of our clothes together...but again my SO doesnt have any specifications on how he likes his clothes washed and put away lol.

I won't iron his clothes, but wash is ok.

If DH had to wash his own clothes he'd possible remember to call a laundry service and I'd have to gather them up quick when the laundry service showed up! Or he'd just buy a new outfit every day. It wouldn't work.

Uhhh no. My husband has always washed his clothes. We've been together seven years next week.

Weird to me. My clothes and DH's clothes go together. Now, if he worked a messy dirty job, that would be different.

I find it weird. My sister refuses to wash her DHs clothes too. I just don't get it.

I wasn't aware you had to wash your spouse's clothes as a rule.
