I used to be just like that when Darling Husband and I first got together. I loved reading this little post. It made me feel warm and fuzzy and brought me back a little. Thank you πŸ™‚

I completely understand that.  I work in corporate america managing 100+ people, am the “breadwinner” of the family, and work 50+ hours a week.  However, nothing can replace that “warm and fuzzy” of picking out and ironing SO’s clothing for a special event, cooking an elaborate meal he loves, or doing some home furnishing that I know *he* (not just me) will like.  I rarely admit that we transition into traditional gender roles as soon as we get home from work every day to even my closest friends!  πŸ™‚    

In the same respect, although I am extremely handy around the house (I spent 8 years in the military…a girl’s gotta learn this stuff), I step aside and “pretend” that he knows how to put things together and hook up electrical appliances and fix things better than I can.  Yes, I know, I just pushed the woman’s movement back about 15 years but if it makes him feel more like a man, I’m happy to make that sacrifice (and keep my hands clean!)

I remember the days that we used to cook TOGETHER and I loved it, it was such a fun, special time for us. But now a days it’s me cooking alone πŸ™ I love to do it, but I just miss spending that time with him.

Yes!

My man and I are long distance right now, so when I went out to visit him in December, I had 2 weeks with no car in a town I didn’t know, and lots of time around the apartment.  I did laundry and cleaned and decorated (he’s only lived there about 4 months) and loved every second.  I definitely thought about how much I can’t wait to be married to him. πŸ™‚

we are often told our home is a throwback to the 50’s.  although i work longer hours and have a more stressful job the only thing my hubby does it take out the garbage, i do everything else and that includes calling him when dinner is on the table ready

doesnt work for all but it works for us

I am from a traditional background and I sometimes start falling into that role but then I yank myself back. I still do the majority of the cooking but he does the cleaning up and the laundry and I don’t iron his clothes. If there is one thing I hate more than doing laundry, it’s ironing. I wish I could pay someone to do it for me. But that would be taking my laziness to a whole other level… which I don’t mind doing actually Embarassed
