I am watching “My Big Friggin Wedding”. Never heard of it or saw it before, but in this one scene a guy brought his mom to teach the fiance to cook after she got out of work with out warning. His comment was “there will be problems after we are married if I come home and you dont cook.” Or something similar.
Holy Moly! Now I do most of the cooking. I get home first, I cook better etc. But let me tell you, if the SO had the expectation that it ws my job, as opposed to I have the time or I enjoy it most of the time. That would not fly. He cooks when I am home later, which granted is rare, but at least he respects that our roles are because of convenience, not expectations.
Anyway, are there roles that you take in your home that are expected as opposed to sharing responsibilities (you do this, I do this) or because it makes sense? And if you or the other didnt do it, would the other person be mad? (not because it didnt get done due to other constraints, but because its your “role”)
