DH had lived out of home on and off when we got together but I doubt those houses were clean.
He is hopeless and needs to be nagged to help. He would be happy living in a tip and I'm a clean freak. It's a major issue.

DH lived alone & in share houses, I was at home till I moved in with DH 4 years ago.
Everything is split down the middle when were both home. If either of us are away for work the other takes on 100%.
When I'm home the washing is my thing, I must do it or I'll go nuts.
I did more than my fair share while living with the parents.

DP has lived out of home for 11years, some of the time with his girlfriends at the time but mostly by himself. He's capable of doing anything and everything around the house.
When we moved in we decided on a me inside and him outside agreement. This has mostly worked well for us, and if I'm particularly busy with an assignment due he has done the inside as well. He is a very good outside man as is very handy, gardens and cares for a veggie garden and chooks. He fixes inside things too.

Before kids, it was even.. But after a few kids and dh working long hours, it's pretty much all done by me, except whipper snipping and probably only cause im really bad at it.. Not only do I do everything, I also get complained at for not doing something seeing as "I'm home all day"
He used to put in an effort. Kind of frustrating, especially when you know others husbands help out.
The thing is, I manage to do it all, and still have heaps of time left in my days.. Would I like a hand, some days.. Just so long as my house is tidy and I get to kick back in the evening I'm fine with it... God.. I'm such a 50's house wife...

DH lived out of home before we lived together, but his mum really made sure all her boys could cook, clean and look after themselves. He is much tidier than I am but we both love clean

I had a car accident on Friday and hubby has been taking care of the cooking and dishes since then and today even hung clothes out and then bought them in once they were dry..
Its been 3 days and he is definitely over it. He seems to get more frustrated with the kids when he has other stuff to do so think he will probably go back to work for a normal day tomorrow. It doesn't seen to make him appreciate what I do though, just annoys him that I can't do it.
When I moved in with him, after living out of my parents home for 5 years, I complained to his mum that he was hopeless at pretty much everything related to housework and maintenance to which she replied "well that's your fault for moving in with him so soon after he moved put of home." I was so mad and it has made me even more determined to raise all my children to be responsible, self sufficient adults that can look after themselves.
Sorry a bit of a me vent there :-)
