I don't have a dishwasher and I'm insanely jealous of everyone who does. my last house had one and I over looked the fact that this house doesn't we own so could technically put on in but there just isn't room
Well we have the if u cook u don't clean rule so DH usually does the dishes while I shower the kids, but he doesn't always do them which annoys me.
So maybe half the time they are done at night by DH and the other half they are done by me in the morning
But it works well now cos while I cook he baths the kids and does a general tidy up and when he washes up I read to the kids and put them to bed.

I do them everyday mainly because I'm so OCD when it comes to the kitchen. The rest of the house could look like a bombs hit it... But as long as the kitchen is clean I feel like I've accomplished something when DH gets home haha.
I have a dishwasher though which makes life so much easier
We also have the cooking vs dishes rule. I do most of the cooking, so DH does the dishes. They don't get done every day, but it doesn't bother me as long as I have what I need clean to do dinner the next night - DH will often wash up when I start preparing food.
On the weekends when we have DH's sons they are in charge of doing the dishes every day they're with us. They figured out pretty quickly that if they slack off and choose not to do the dishes at night, I don't cook breakfast for them! Bacon is very motivational
Dishes are always done as soon as meal time is over. It's dirty leaving dirty dishes in the sink ewwww. The kids are bathed and fed before dinner so no interruption to them.
Mine are done most nights. Usually in the dishwasher but sometimes hand washed depending how much we have. I hate them on the bench plus it's easier to clean them if it's not left for days.
