husbands, wives and mothers...**EDITED***

Why do guys think when they get married they are just getting a younger "mother"? (To do laundry, clean, cook, etc)


He doesn't expect me to do this, but he won't either. all i am saying is...Isn't marriage supposed to be a partenership? As in 50/50?

That's what mine got.  We chose that for ourselves though.

*ETA*  Not a younger mother, but a wife that cooks, cleans and does laundry, etc

I am the complete opposite of how my MIL was.  She never worked a day in her life and I am very career driven.  She tolerated a ton of BS, while I have no tolerance for BS at all.  I think my husband saw the lack of give and take in his parent's marriage and chose to have one where the husband and wife are more equal in their roles.

I can't stand it when mine "organizes" things.  I'll be asking him for weeks where stuff is.  LOL  I love that he helps though, so I try not to say anything.

Mine knows not to help! When we got married, we made a deal. I was the bodd at home, he was the boss at work. Now that I don't work, I am still the boss at home and when he asks what he can do, I tell him NOTHING! He messes up my "system"
