husbands/boyfriends who dont help around the house, with the kids or cleaning. i have a question do they work? arent they contributing if they are bringing in the income and providing a roof over you and your lo(s) head and putting food on the table???

why dont you take the time and appreciate what they do for you?



my husband works 65 hours a week, i dont expect him to come home after working 15 hour days and clean the house, that is my duty and how i contribute to my family.


just saying.

 My husband always helped out on his days off. I worked from home and did 99 % of the stuff . I was OK with it and so was he. I guess to each his own. I never understood the I am a stay at home he should do 1/2 the shit when he gets home. I do believe that when they get hoome they should help ut with either bathing the kids & getting them ready for bed while she cleans up after dinner OR vice versa.

I do most of the housework and I work at home. I suppose if Df's job required more than staring at a computer and sitting at a computer desk (which is what both of our jobs entail), I wouldn't ask him to help around the house. He takes out the trash, will run a few loads, etc if I ask; but overall I have no problems taking care of the majority. When it comes to our daughter though, I expect him to take the time and consideration to equally taking care of her needs and wants.

I agree. My SO works very hard 6 sometimes 7 days a week. I feel my job is to keep the house looking nice and keep our LO happy. My SO isn't a slob though, thankfully.

Well I am the one that works. But I do most of the house work which is frustrating. We both go to school full time and I am the only one that works...

I still expect him to, in the VERY least, help out with the kids! He helped make them he can help raise them and not by just providing for them either. Having a child is much more than just making sure their basic needs are met!

We have a traditional relationship. I am a stay at home wife and mom. DD (3) goes to school. I cook clean do the errands. He works. When he gets home we eat, I calean the kitchen, We care of DD's bath, family fun time and put her to bed.
He does wash his own work clothes. His choice, I offer.... Guess he is afraid I will ruin them or something:/.
When we both worked 12-15 hour days we split all the chores and DD's care. Seems like the right trade off.
My JOB as a stay at home is to do these things.

We both work full-time.  I do most of the work around the house because I'm picky, BUT I do expect not only my husband to help but also the kids.  I'm not the only one who lives here.  And when it comes to the kids, I don't care how much or hard a husband/so works, he damn well better be helping to raise and take care of his children.  Thankfully, my husband agrees.

I work full time, DH works around 100+ hrs a week, when he's working I don't expect help. HOWEVER on his 1 week off every few weeks I do expect him to clean up after himself which he doesn't do. That does drive me nuts.
