    I voted yes, but I think I'm actually with Ali, we both live here, the kids are ours, the house is ours, we just get on and along with it all together. Though the best decision our Committee of Two came to was to get a cleaner, so we can get on with other stuff on a Saturday.

    My DP works long, hard hours and since I am home all day I dont expect him to come home and clean the house or anything like that. If I were working it would be a different story but the fact is that he is out there earning so we can keep this roof over our heads and so that I have the opportuniy to stay home so I dont mind doing the cooking and cleaning while he is gone. Its not hard and it doesnt take long anyways.

    When he is home though he will offer to d dishes after dinner andalways asks me if I would like him to do anything. He also loves spending time playing with DS when he gets home a couple of hours before Ds bedtime so I dont mind cleaning up after dinner so he can have that time with him.

    Same here, he likes cooking so he does quite a bit of that anyway and would do anything else i ask him to whatever or whenever. he is the best

    We know a woman who is home all day with her child but refuses to cook or clean at all. So her husband comes home late like 6pm and has t rush around cleaning up and getting dinner started . Its a bit lazy of her really considering she does nothing else all day.

    There needs to be a balance that both of you are happy with.

    I voted other.
    During the week DH will not do any housework and I don't expect him too as he works long hours and I am home all day on maternity leave.
    On weekends we both do housework,whatever needs doing gets done,he also looks after all the yard work.
    He is currently on a month leave(bubs due tomorrow)and we are both doing housework.

    I voted never.....we also dont have kids.

    Reason why I voted never was he works practically 7 days a week over 17 hours a day....so all in all he is never home.

    Joys of running your own business

    DH mows, whipper snips, wash the cars, and cooks dinner a couple of times a week.

    I do everything else

    DH doesn't help he does his share, we both live here, we both make mess, we both created a child so we both raise him. DH is a shift worker so he's home a lot during the day, why should I baby him? The only thing that I usually take care of is all the cooking. I'm pregnant and cooking is a struggle as the smells make me vomit so I'm not doing much of that either.

    I hate the mentality that it's the womans work! It's our home and our mess so WE clean it up.

    DF is pretty good, I think we have it quite even actually.

    Although I do the cooking & most of the cleaning, he always does the dishes after dinner, the bins & the kitty litter (all the yuck stuff!)

    I voted yes but like other hubbers my DP doesn't help he simply does his fair share.

    We both work the same hours, both look after DS, both clean the house. We do have our 'things' that we do because we'd prefer it to something else (i.e. I do the toilet and he does the floors because he hates cleaning the toilet and I hate cleaning the floors!!) but it's pretty equal here.

    Just as I don't consider my working "helping" with the household budget, we both play a role
