    He'll cook and do the dishes maybe once a week, which is fine because he works 5 days in a stressful job and I work half a day on the weekend.

    The thing that frustrates me to tears is that he doesn't do any of the 'fix it' jobs aound the house, but I guess I'll have to leave that for another poll . . .

    I clicked other. But yes he helps around the house. Like pp's have mentioned, DP works long hours, so I do the majority of the cleaning/cooking. But he still helps out when he is home, especially with outside chores.

    No, I do the housework, cooking, shopping. DP works full time outside of the house.

    But he will renovate the kitchen, or build me a new deck, or fix the pump, or build a fence whenever required. And I love him for it.

    Very traditional gender roles, but it works for us.

    Default Yes!!

    My partner does help around the house, he cooks dinner at least three times a week, and does the dishes a couple of nights a week, he does the rubbish and a few other things.. i even had him cleaning the toilets last weekend! We have a very good understanding when it comes to helping around the house as we do not see it as him helping me its helping each other as the quicker things are done the more time we have to relax and do the things we want! We both work fulltime and as we are now expecting our first bub the relaxed system we have, im sure will be definately be thrown up in the air - Looking forward to it though!

    We both work fulltime, but DH normally does his bit around the house aside from the mowing. He also gives our two toddlers DS1 (2.5 yrs) and DS2 (1.5 yrs) baths when I'm busy cooking and mostly does the getting ready for the day during the weekdays for both kids.

    He also normally would make dinner probably twice a week, and when I'm bsy would make lunch during the weekends and definitely Breakfast on the weekends!

    Wow!! I am thinking I drew the short straw here I left work to be a stay at home mum, so now the way it works in my house is "The house and DD is my job" so the majority of cooking and cleaning and looking after the little one falls to me. My husband will still do something if I ask him to (but I did vote "acts like a complete hero when he does"!), but we look at the domestic side of things as being "my job" now... Still it works well for us. He works long days in a stressfull job so that I can be at home with our baby, so I dont mind making sure he comes home to a clean house with a cooked dinner. Also he lets me sleep in on the weekends and gets up to DD himself. He calls it his special time with her

    He doesn't do a thing bar feed the animals, I Cook,clean, wash mow, whipper snip, wash car, everything. But while I'm doing so, he is with the kids, not just watching them but playing, teaching, and caring for them, so I can't complain! At least not today ha ha.
