I see that this is an old thread but DAMN does this ring true…glad to hear I am not alone! I have only been living with my fiance for a few months, and I knew what I was getting into before we moved in together as I’d spent loads of time at his apartment. But still. Woof…the pile of shoes and socks in the living room. The toiletries spilling over the sink in the bathroom. The clothes strewn about in whichever room he happened to be in when he took them off. The open cabinets. The little bits of paper and unread male piling up all over the place. The Amazon boxes that never get broken down or taken out to recycling. The reaking trash that doesn’t get taken out unless I do it.
I am not working full time at the moment, so I have been doing the bulk of the housework as a way of contributing, but holy shit, everyone has their limit. If anyone figures out the age old mystery of how to find that sweet spot between being a nag and being a pushover, please let me know!
In the meantime, I will continue loving my amazing fiance who is so good to me, and trying not to have a rage stroke when it comes to picking up after him. I just hope before too long we can afford a maid lol.
