DanniBee83:   

1. Do you wash your spouse’s clothes or does he/she?

We both do the laundry.  Some days he does everything including my clothes and the towels and sheets, and some days I do everything.

2. Do you share the cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?

Honestly, he does most of the cooking.  We eat the same thing almost every single night and I’m really not all that great at cooking anything unless there is a microwave involved.  

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans?

I do most of the cleaning on a regular basis, but he will spend one day a week while I’m at work where he scrubs the house from top to bottom!

4. Do you work full-time?

Yes.

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

Yes.

 

Everything is split pretty equally between us.  DH can’t drive (medical) so I take him to and from work.  As a result, he does more than his fair share of cooking and cleaning.  It may not work for most, but it works for us!

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she?

I do the laundry.  It’s not that he won’t do it or anything, I am just pretty picky (I don’t use a dryer, I prefer a clothesline) so it makes sense for me to wash my own and while I am at it, I usually just wash his too.  I have taught our daughter to do hers and sometimes she does it and sometimes I do it.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?

We both cook but I do the vast majority of it – I am a much better cook and I have more time.  We both do the grocery shopping equally though.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans?

We both clean but he does much more cleaning than I do.  I am a terrible housekeeper – like the bare minimum of dishes and laundry and basic picking up so he does all vacuuming and dusting and bathroom cleaning and that sort of thing.

4. Do you work full-time?

I do not work at all right now, I JUST went back to school (this week!) for some additional training in my field.

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

My husband does work full-time.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she?

We wash our own, usually separately. He once dyed my clothes because he doesn’t do whites/darks/reds and he alsoworks with chemicals and corrosive materials and doesn’t want our clothes mixing (which is fine by me!)

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?

We share it. He likes cooking more than me so he usually does it more often.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans?

We share, but he’s a little OCD so I’m positive he does a more thoroughm, deep cleaning than I do.

4. Do you work full-time?

I work full time and attend graduate school full time

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

He works full time and takes undergrad classes every semester

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she?

We both share laundry duties fairly equally, maybe him slightly more just because he has less clothes and has to do laundry more often. A lot of times though I’ll throw it in the wash and then he’ll throw it in the dryer.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?

I do primarily all the cooking except for when we grill outside. He usually does that. I’m sure he’d be happy to help in the kitchen more, I just enjoy cooking and am the better cook.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans?

I try to help with cleaning, but, I have to be honest and admit that he does most of the cleaning. I am just not naturally a neat person and he is very picky about housekeeping. The only exception is the kitchen. Since I do virtually all cooking I handle any cleaning and organization in the kitchen since I’m particular about how it’s arranged.

4. Do you work full-time?

Yes.

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

Yes.

1.  We each do our own separate loads of laundry.

2. We share cooking.

3.  I do the majority of the cleaning – but he’ll do stuff when I ask him to. And he typically vacums – I hate vacuming.

4. We both work full-time.

I did ask him to try to keep his clothes off top of his dresser and in a basket in the closet – he’s trying.  🙂    Has anyone successfully trained your SO to load the dishwasher?  I can tell this is going to take some major training on my part –  he always puts stuff directly in the sink and not the dishwasher!

  • Wedding: October 2015

We aren’t married yet (next month) but we have been living together for the past year.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? Whoever is available to do laundry does it. Sometimes it’s me, sometimes it’s him. Sometimes he starts the wash and I end up folding, and vice versa. We do all of our laundry together though, we don’t separate it by his clothes and mine, just lights and darks.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? Fiance does 90% of the cooking, but we are usually in the kitchen together while dinner is being prepared.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? We share the chores. I do the majority of the cleaning, but he will clean one of the bathrooms and he takes care of all the plants. If I’m busy sometimes he will do all the cleaning by himself. We dedicate Sunday to cleaning the apartment and grocery shopping.

4. Do you work full-time? Yes.

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Yes.

Honestly, I feel like I really lucked out finding someone that helps share the domestic duties, and really does his best to take care of me.

1. I wash mine and his. He only washes his because he’s a ‘throw it all in the dryer’ guy and some of my stuff has to be hung to dry. And I don’t wanna have anything ruined. 

2. We cook pretty equally 

3. We both clean. He says I never do, but realistically when we clean together he gets distracted and I do it by myself. 

4/5 We both work 40-50 hour weeks, M-F

1. Generally I wash both of our clothes, but he is fine with doing it if he needs something done for work and I’m not planning on doing a load.

2. I’m the only one who cooks. He grills, though, but I do all the rest.

3. I do 99% of the cleaning – he’s gone for work for 2 weeks out of every 3 and I have my routine. When he’s home, he totally does things when I ask him to – but he doesn’t notice the mess as much as I do and I prefer to just keep up with it as I go.

4. I do work full time but my job is pretty low-key.

5. He works full-time, 12-16 hour days, 15 days on and 6 days off. He works in remote communities far from home in the oil and gas industry and it’s very labour intensive.

DanniBee83:  Not married yet, but engaged and living together so almost like married.

 

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she?

– I was his clothes and I love it. It gives me a chance to blame it on laundry gnomes when his super old, stained, semi-torn clothes disappear. And he does not separate colors so I just think I do it better.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?

– I am basically the only one that cooks but that is because I LOVE to cook and he doesn’t know how. But he makes a badass grilled cheese sandwich that he prepares for me whenever I request it 🙂 He grills amazingly though, he is my grill master.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans?

– We share it. I clean bathroom, he cleans kitchen. Then we clean bedroom “half & half” as in he cleans his side of bed and I clean my side of bed. And then whoever has free time will clean living room. I am sure that will change once we get a house but 1 bedroom apartment makes things easy.

4. Do you work full-time?

– I work full time, overtime, and full time school.

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

– He works full time, then half time, then half time school.

fourtylove:  My Fiance always do dishes. I am filthy about that, I throw it in the sink or leave it on the table with saying “ill wash it later”. He is great like that.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? We do laundry together, I’ll start it he’ll swap it over while I start a new load and then we fold clothes together.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? I cook always. He can microwave but not cook….. If I’m not there he gets take out or makes a PB&J sandwich.. We both are getting grilling lessons from his dad.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? He does the dishes he was raised the one who cooks doesn’t clean. I clean the bathrooms and he will vacuum and do all the yard stuff

4. Do you work full-time? Yes about 50 hrs a week

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Yes about 50 hrs a week

Darling Husband and I work at the same place and about 90% of the time the same hours so we carpool about 3 days a week. My boss is flexible with my hours so if Darling Husband is working overtime or getting off early I can leave with him.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? We just mix our clothes together, but for the most part I do the laundry.  I find it quite relaxing and I fold while watching TV.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks?  I’m the primary cook.  Once every couple weeks he does dinner (usually an interesting sandwich concoction that tastes amazing) and when I’m sick he picks up the slack with tack away, easy things like canned soup or sandwiches.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? I clean about 80% of the time.  I sweep up, clean the kitty litter, do a lot of the dishes, make the bed, clean all but the toilet.  He will do dishes some mornings, sometimes do the litter and he is the prime toilet cleaner.  He’s good at doing something if I ask, but if I don’t he doesn’t notice it’s not done.  I don’t mind it being unequal because he stays on top of our garbage and the recycling, which is almost impossible for me.  We live in an apartment and the garbage bin is about a foot above my head and I also can’t lift the garbage bag up to get it in the dang bin.

4. Do you work full-time? I work part to full time.  I’m in between jobs right now so I work for DH’s business and it’s seasonal.  Last week I did a full 40 hours but the week before that I did 10-15 and this week I’ve done about 5 because I’ve been really ill.

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Yes.  He puts in 40-50 hours a week.
