    He does all the cooking, and he takes the trash out. But that is IT. He NEVER picks up and he NEVER sweeps, mops, cleans anything. It can be infuriating. Sometimes he will put the dishes away if he’s really in a bind.

    My husband only works part time right now, while I work full time.  Our agreement is that as long as he is working fewer hours than me, he will do more housework. He’s not as attentive about it as I would be so I still have to ask him to do specific things every day, but he does whatever I ask him to do.  It works for us.

    He does the trash and will help with anything else! I usually do the cooking and cleaning but started a new job a few months ago where i get home a little bit later and have come home to him cooking! Big switch since he NEVER cooked before we were married. If i leave laundray in the washer or dryer he helps with that too. Im glad he’s so helpful because i have all brothers and know how guys can be.

    My SO does the garbage, recycling and most of the cooking. We share doing the dishes, but I mostly keep the house clean ( vacuuming and such).

    I cook and do most of the major grocery shopping.  He does everything else.  I work full time and he’s a “househusband.”  It rocks!

    Darling Husband is a huge help normally, but not recently.

    He goes to school full time and travels for work all week. His help right now is the extra bacon ($) he’s bringing home (from traveling) and the fact that his Masters will help our family in the future.

    He does all the cooking and grocery shopping, but I do everything else (laundry, dishes, mopping, cleaning bathrooms).

    He does more than me. I’m more chilled, get to that in a minute where as he can’t sit still. I’ll have a shower and he has started a load, washed dishes and tidying up. I feel lazy :/

    Edit – he is he cook, slowly teaching me ๐Ÿ™‚

    We tend to split saturday morning cleaning. I do the kitchen and bedroom, he does the bathroom and living room. Things like dishes and laundry are kind of give and take. whoever has time does it.
