Um he’s a grown ass man. Why *wouldn’t* he contribute to keeping his home clean? It’s not 1950.

I hate cleaning, so my Fiance actually does most of it even though he works full time and I work part time. I’ve just always hated cleaning and he says “Don’t worry, I don’t mind doing it and you do, so I’ll do it.”

Mr. Blue Moon cleans a lot more than I do. Dishes and cleaning the cat litterboxes are my least favorite, so Mr. Blue Moon usually takes care of those. I take care of the deep cleaning of the bathrooms and kitchens, and most of the laundry.

Yes, we try to help each other out so it goes by faster, FI will not touch the laundry though, but I make him hang up his stuff and put his stuff into drawers, because he likes it a certain way. I leave the laundy folded on the bed to be put away or hanging on a chair to be hung up.

We recetly got a new shark vacuum and haha he loves it!!! He always asks to vacuum when we clean up around the house, but I will help move furniture out of the way. Dishes we switch on and off both of us do them, sometimes he more than me or me more than him.

Teamwork!!! We make it work for both of us.

Yes – 50/50!  This post also made me think of another one I saw a while ago… (though I definitely realize that there are other ways to divide household duties than for both people to clean!)

yeah, he’ll clean the bathroom, vacuum, help with the dishes (but i did have to teach him that you can’t wash dishes with cold/lukewarm water), take out the trash, and he’ll help with laundry, but i have to be very specific about how it needs to be done otherwise he will throw everything in the same load and it drives me nuts.

I do the main ‘clean’ of lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom but Fiance does so many smaller jobs that I hate – laundry, bins, dishes and dishwasher (I cook). I wonder if I don’t pull my weight as I do a through clean about once a week but seems to work with our preferences.

He tried but just doesn’t see the dirt (which is impressive!). I clean, get groceries and do the dishes, he cooks, does the laundry, takes out the bin and cleans our shoes. It balances out.

He doesn’t ‘help’ me- we share the work, because it’s both our responsibility!

He would be insulted if I said he helped ME.  I help him (sometimes!).  He’s the primary cleaner in our relationship and I’m the primary cook. 

He’s a catch.

He cleans more than I do! He does the dished 99% of the time because I hate doing the dishes but I usually clean the bathroom. Typically, we pick a day where we both spend an hour or so cleaning the apartment.

I wouldn’t want to be with someone who didn’t share equally in the housework.

Yes, he likes to do the cleaning much more than I do, he loves it. I’m much more of the slob but I definitely do my share to help
