I am not saying OP does this at all, but we women have to stop thinking that domesticity is the way to show affection for our male SOs. It *can* be but it is not our duty or the “natural” way. I am sure OP’s husband would be a whiny child if he got sick. I have seen this time and time again. I know of a woman who had a fever of over a 100 and her husband left her with their three kids (all under 5) cause “that’s her job.” Week later, he got sick with the same thing, and expected her to take care of him!! We spoil ours sons, we make our daughters do the fucking dishes cause they’re “more responsible”, and then we wonder why this happens. I looooved hearing my Fiance explain that he never *asked* his mother to wait on him hand and foot – that she LOVES to do his laundry. She might, because she was raised to think that’s how women show love. But sorry honey, you will not be taking advantage of free labor because I am female. We changed that shit REAL QUICK and now he is a wonderful partner who does 50/50 housework, as it should be. They only do this bullshit BECAUSE WE LET THEM.
End rant. I hate this topic haha.
