DF lived alone from when he was 17, he is now 24 and very domestic. We constantly clean and I never have to ask him for help (with kids either), he always gets up and just does it and appreciates what I do around the house as well. He washes my car for me too
ETA very anal about his lawn too, Im not allowed to touch it lol.

DH lived with his parents until he moved in with me, whilst I had been in my own homes for seven years. He could cook but was otherwise pretty clueless! He isn ok now, he doesn't do many inside jobs without being asked but he does do them well and he does all the outside stuff too.

DH and I balance each other quite well. He's naturally tidy and organised while I'm not, yet I have a horror of uncleanliness - so he tidies etc and I clean. Works well for us.
When we first moved in together he did most of the cooking, however, nowadays I do the bulk. This has evolved over time and it works really well for all of us.

DF admits he has never ever done housework, at best he vacuumed and tipped bleach down the loo before I came along, now he will vacuum and mop it doesn't really bother me, as long as he helps to pick up toys, do the dishes and the laundry I can handle being in charge of the bathrooms, toilets, dusting

Dh and I both lived at home with each of our parents and were building our house throughout our engagement which was ready to move in shortly after our wedding. So he had never lived out of home,however I did for a short stint a few years prior.
Dh does majority of the cleaning and I look after/play with DD and try to do the laundry and a few small jobs while he does the lot. It's like his stress relief at the end of the week. He went a little overboard today and cleaned all the blinds as well as the normal whole house clean. But I'm not complaining!

DP has never lived alone. Nor have I.
He is probably more tidy than me.

And someone mentioned its a stress relief for their OH..I am starting to think it is for DF too, not like the laundry or anything but dusting, vacuuming and mopping.

Before I was pregnant I cooked and we both do cleaning in the weekends. When I got pregnant & had bub DH has been doing all the cleaning plus cooking for himself. We eat different things now because of my (weird) cravings. He does anything I ASK him to. Ie. I have to ask, but I don't mind
