Our way of handling these things–

“YOU get the milk!” “No, YOU get the milk!”


“Fine! We BOTH go get the milk!”


And we do. We literally walk to the store (or drive) together and suffer together.

Put your foot down girl! The last thing you want is for him to develop a habit and think that this behavior is ok. Worse, you may begin to resent him which will impact your relationsip negatively. Just have a talk with him.

@BothCoasts:  THIS IS WHAT WE DO TOO!! I think the guy running our corner store must find us crazy.

We also jointly grocery shop. But we like going together. We work opposing schedules, so our time together is limited.

I would not be okay with that behavior!

Fiance is the one who cooks for us, since I’m a horrible cook and he’s fantastic, but I NEVER nag him about dinner it is usually him asking me if I’m hungry yet! Most days I would just eat a sandwich if I was left to my own devices.

And we, too almost always go to the store together. OR, while he is cooking, I will go get whatever we are out of. 

I wouldn’t throw a fit but just calmly point out how his behavior makes you feel if he does this again.

Than being said, my Fiance will sit and watch TV and/or play videogames while I work on homework for hours, instead of cleaning the house, and then on the weekend he complains that we have to clean because it’s gotten sooo messy. (He’s more of a neat freak than me, but neither one of us like cleaning alone).
