DH is fantastic - he probably does more around the house than I do (although I would never admit that to him).
We both clean the house, I cook dinner (because he can't cook anything) and he does the cleaning up, he baths DS, we both do laundry, he feeds the cats and cleans their litter, he gets up with DS at the weekend so I can have a lie-in. He can't make a decent cup of tea though, that's my area of expertise.
He went to boarding school, and lived with an anal roommate at uni and afterwards so he's pretty much been looking after himself since he was 13.
He does his own ironing too - I have tried to help but he just re-irons it, so won't make that mistake again.
Sorry Ladies, he's taken..

It does irritate me though that if a man does his share around the house, everyone tells you know marvellous he is and how lucky you are to have him...I wonder how many people tell him how lucky he is to have a wife who spends 80% of her time raising his son, cooking his meals - NO-ONE, because it's expected of me

We're both uni students, but his full time and im currently part time, he also works to help us make ends meet financially.
So for me he brings in the money and I keep the household in order, I think its a fair compromise and he has had to grow up a lot as he's never had to clean up after himself, so he knows I'm happy just as long as I don't have to pick up his smelly socks

I have to say im very very lucky to have my man. He does pretty much everything! He won't even let me do any washing because we have the cat litter in the laundry and he doesn't want me to be around it while im pregnant!

he brings in money and thats it. not helpful at all in any other way.
i do everything as it is. atleast the kids see their dad most days - if he's home before they go to bed.
if i left what would i gain? nothing apart from more money issues and not having my kids 24/7 - that would gut me.

my dp works hard too and I never expected him to cook or clean until I was working long hours while pregnant and was still doing everything so now I expect him to do more when he is around on the weekends or having a day off . reading to/putting our dd3 to bed sometimes would be nice or even a bit of handyman stuff like making me a kitchen, I hate seeing my family sitting around on the weekend

yes we have our specific jobs and then things we do together.
DH does the kitchen morning and night, all the ironing and the rubbish. He also steam mops the house every second night.
he does most of the cooking and he does homework with one child each night..while I am with the other.

My DH works long hours and travels through nasty traffic to and from work. He feeds the cats, cleans up after himself, and baths bubs during the week. On the weekends he does not work he takes care of bubs in the mornings so I can sleep in and does the evening routine so that I can catch up on things I have missed during the week.
I'm going back to work soon a couple of days a week so hopefully he'll help out more..... Hopefully!!!
