1. He does all the laundry, he picks a day about every three weeks and does it all at once. It takes all morning/afternoon so I appreciate it.

2. I do all the cooking. He’s my prep guy – chopping, peeling, grating, etc. He can’t cook except eggs.

3. We share cleaning, but probably about a 65/35 split for me. He’ll do it when I ask but he seriously doesn’t mind messiness as much as me. 

4. I work full time and am an competitive athlete, train in the evenings and help run our gym.

5. He runs our gym, and trains as well.

1. We usually do our own laundry but we both hate it so we tend to negotiate around the issue a lot. For instance, I’ll do laundry the next two rounds if you take my car for inspection. 

2. He does most of the cooking now that I’ve started grad school but I trained him well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

3. He does 90% of the cleaning.

4. I work full time + grad school

5. He works full time but he has time at home during the day to do stuff around the house.

I actually feel that the laundry should be my duty since he does almost everything else – I just HATE it so much!

We’ve switched it up over the years. His favorite version is my being a trophy wife who does all the housework, so that we can play when he’s off work, and I don’t mind. I’m hoping to settle into a PT gig that lets me be a hybrid Stay-At-Home Wife.

I cook and clean everything. I also take care of the kids. I’m a Stay-At-Home Mom and he works 60 hours a week.

I do like to cook though, shoot I’m about to bake some brownies so I don’t count that as a chore. Its fun for me.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? We both put loads of laundry in.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? I cook the most but he will grill a lot. I would rather just cook because I am scared of what he will cook ๐Ÿ™‚

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? I clean the most. If I ask him to do something he will. Plus he does all the yard work. 

4. Do you work full-time? I work full-time 40 hours a week. 

5. Does your spouse work full-time? He also works full-time but his is more like 50ish hours a week.

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

We wash our own clothes. 

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

I’m the only one that cooks. He works until 9 PM or later M-F so it wouldn’t make sense for him to cook. And honestly, he’s pretty clueless in the kitchen.

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

We share cleaning chores. I end up doing more than he does, but he does help as much as possible.

4. Do you work full-time?

I work full time at a typical 9-5 job.

5. Does your spouse work full-time?

He works more than full time. He has two jobs and works from 9 AM to 9 PM M-F. Thankfully he has weekends off.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? I do all of the laundry. Stay out of MY laundry room. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? I am the head chef, and he is the sous chef. I do the menu planning and shopping. I also get the crockpot started in the morning, since I am the last one out the door in the morning, and he will prep the side dishes in the evening since he gets home before I do on most days.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? Cleaning is shared. e.g. I load the dishwasher and he hand washes the items that are not dishwasher safe.

4. Do you work full-time? Yes

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Yes

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? We both do laundry – if there’s a load that needs to be washed, whoever is free throws it in, transfers to dryer and we both fold and put them away.

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? We share, we used to do he prep/I cook/he washed dishes but since I got pregnant and am more sentitive to smells, he cooks for the both of us far more often than I do.

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? We split that. He vacuums, takes trash/recycling, cleans the bathrooms and I do the surface cleaning and decluttering.

4. Do you work full-time? Yes

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Yes

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she?  Most of the time we wash together, otherwise whoever has free time washes all the clothing or if either one is travelling then we wash before the other returns

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? I cook mostly unless I work OT then he cooks

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? We somewhat have designated chores (eg. he throws out all the trash and I usually take care of the dishes) but if either one of us sees something that needs to be clean we tend to do it right then.

4. Do you work full-time? Yes I do

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

1. We each wash our own clothes.

2. We share the cooking, but he does more than me.

3. We share the cleaning, but I usually do more. Since I’ve been pregnant, he’s been helping more with the things that are getting harder for me, like bending over to scrub the tub.

4. & 5. We both work full-time outside the home.

DH and I have been together for 19 years and married for 13 years. He has always had the mentality that we are in a partnership so why should I do all the work.

1) Clothes – I wash everyone’s clothes together. I don’t get the whole you do your laundry, I do mine mentality. Clothes get separated into lights and darks. Then pants, shirts, and underclothes with socks. DH will help with a load or two on weekends.  He puts his own clothes away because he likes to fold his tshirts a certain way.

2) Cooking – I do most of the cooking through the week but DH cleans up. If he cooks (breakfast for dinner or grilling outside), then I clean up. This system has been in play since day 1 of us moving in together.

3) Cleaning – I probably clean up more bit it usually involves cleaning up our 2 boys’ stuff while they are at school. They help on weekends and DH tries to keep things tidy. Sunday am is our big clean up day – dusting, vacuuming,  wash sheets, and cleaning bathrooms.  DH cleans the guest bathroom which him and the boys use. He vacuums the living room and dining room, I do the bedrooms.

We share in yard work – he mows the grass, I weed the flower beds (he helps out too).

4) I am a Stay-At-Home Mom.

5) He works full time.

DanniBee83:  I’m currently in between jobs. I was working full time, now I’m not and won’t be until after July. So I’ll give you a bit of both.

1. Do you wash your spouses clothes or does he/she? When I was working he did most of the laundry. Now I do almost all of it. I miss that though because I really hate laundry. Haha

2. Do you share cooking during the week, or are you the only one who cooks? While I was working I did most of the cooking since I was off at 6 and he gets off at 8. Same thing now that I’m not working, except the food is way better! Haha

3. Do you share cleaning chores, or are you the only one who cleans? While I was working I’d say I did 75% of the cleaning, since he worked longer days than I did. He has Thursdays & Sundays off. So Thursday while I was working he’d help around the house. Now I do it all, with the exception of him helping me rinse dishes/put things away after dinner.

4. Do you work full-time? I did until April I worked Mon-Fri and the occasional Saturday

5. Does your spouse work full-time? Full time + some! Salesman are always working it seems.

Not married yet but we have lived together for 9 years.

We both work full time and we share all the chores and the cooking. We both do the laundry. 

We don’t have a set routine really, we’re a team and when something needs doing, one of us will just do it.
