I find since getting married I do a lot more cooking and baking than I used to (even though we lived together while we were engaged).
I don’t know if it’s because I’m falling into the expected gender role or if it’s just that I’ve got all new kitchen stuff!
Have any of your become more domestic since getting married?

HAHA, me domestic? That’s a funny thought. I am the one who does everything but that’s just because it definitely wouldn’t get done at all if I didn’t. I can’t cook to save my life, I burnt brownies last week. I clean only on one of my days off unless I get frustrated and go on a cleaning kick. It’s a good thing my husband knew what he was getting into, lol. I just don’t have the time to do all that with a teenager, a baby, two dogs and a job where sometimes I don’t know when I’m coming home.

I’ve always been domestic and have enjoyed it even more now that we have our own home. I have been branching out into new things including sewing and gardening. If something doesn’t come out well, I ditch it and start over. 😀

I have dual sides. Very domestic when my son is home with me, but when he goes to visit his dad for a few days, I go back to single girl living on her own mode where I get my nails done, go to workout classes at gym, and go shopping.
Even though T and I are getting married this year, we don’t live together. He knows the "duality" of my life right now and loves both sides of it. But my homemaking side makes mean pancakes and omlettes on weekends!

Well, we’re not married yet but we’re living together. I’ve always loved to cook and can’t stand for anything to be dirty. But I lucked out as Shawn is quite the cook. So, most of the time he cooks us dinner. I’ll usually help him prep stuff but he does the majority of it. Sometimes I get kind of irritated because I would like to cook more but for the most part I feel spoiled. Except for the fact that he’s not so good at cleaning up his messes! I guess it’s just 50/50. He makes the messes and I clean them up.

I cook , bake , sew , and i’m handy with a hammer. I’m not expecting being married to change that much , I will never be one to clean regularly. We’ve talked about it , he knows it’s one of my flaws .

I find that I am more domestic now that we’re married. Maybe it’s that I’m out at bars less, so I need something to fill the time. I personally also enjoy the role of "taking care of my husband" in this way. (And he does a ton of the other stuff at home, so it’s not like, a repression type thing ;))

Even though we lived together for 2 years, I am definitely more domestic now. I clean our apartment a lot more carefully because I feel like it’s a reflection on us when friends come to visit.
I cook more for DH because I want him to eat well and healthy.
I always loved baking when I lived with my parents (i.e. BIG suburban kitchen) but stopped when I moved to NYC. Now I’m starting again all thanks to a super generous friend and her Kitchenaid wedding gift :0)

I want to be more domestic but lack the skills so I still voted No.
My hubby is a much better cook. We got the awesome Kitchenaid as a wedding gift so I want to bake now 🙂
