Yes. Actually I don’t much help him. He does all of the cleaning, I do all of the cooking.

ABusyBride:  Same.  I’m actually pretty make around the house.  He’s pretty much driven by a motor and and can’t stop moving even when he gets home from work.  Me?  I get home from work and the last think I want to do it more work!

italybabe:  Yup! He won’t even let me touch the bathroom. Guess he doesn’t like how I do it? Lol! I vacuum and dust and do the kitchen. He does the bathroom and takes out the garbage and recycling. I’d say I probably do more actual cleaning, but he will do the mowing in the summer, too. Plus he does a gazillion sweet things for me like made me breakfast on Saturday and brought me a pillow to get more comfy on the couch when I was sick (without me asking).

Only when I directly ask.  Once in a blue moon I may come home to him cleaning the bathrooms, but that is very rare.

Always. He actually does all of the laundry too. We share the other chores and the cooking.

Yes, I’d kick him out if he didn’t.

Sorta. He’ll clean when asked to clean certain things (dishes, litter box, wipe down counters after use) and does all of the laundry on his own. But I definitely work on a “might as well do it myself if I want it done and done correctly” schedule.

Yes, absolutely. We specialize in taking care of certain things though LOL. I do anything that’s detail oriented, like the bathroom sinks or mirror, organizing, dusting, laundry, etc. He handles big tasks that he can’t possibly mess up….like vacuuming or emptying the cat litter. We have a designated “deep cleaning” night where we both pitch in equally around the house for about an hour. He’s also the handyman.

When I give him at least a few hours heads up on what needs to be done and he tells me he’ll do it within X amount of hours lol

Definitely. I’d say cleaning is probably 60/40 (him/me) and he does 80% of the cooking — yet I work from home and he works 60 hours a week. I do 90% of the dog care (walking, grooming, feeding, store runs, vet visits, training). We’re both happy with our situation and feel that we both pitch in appropriately.

Day to day?  No, not unless I specifically ask for something to be done.  When we expect guest and need a deeper clean, then yes.  But that’s fine with me cause I’ve never lifted a finger to help do things like mow the lawn, snowblow the driveway, clean the pellet stove, keep track and replace airfilters for the furnce as needed and things like that.  So while people seem to harp on equality mostly in cleaning department for some reason, myself inclucded cause I used to get annoying feeling like I was “doing everything” around the house.  But when I stepped back and look at *everything* that really needed to be done around the house, I realized there was a lot he took care of too that I didn’t have to concern myself with.

He sometimes does, but does not do major cleaning. He is tidy and picks up after himself.

When we had just one bathroom and one bedroom, I cleaned everything. Now that he has his “own bathroom” I told him that he has to clean it or we need to hire a maid. I was not going to clean his bathroom and his side of the house. 

If we both work, we can afford a maid. Worth every penny.
