Re: what chores do the husbands do?

I often do the dishes (empty and fill the dishwasher), take care of all the paper recycling, and some of the metal/plastic recycling. All of the vacuuming and steam vac cleaning. Clean the stove. All outdoor stuff (cutting grass, leaves, etc). Usually gather stray dishes that DC left around. Do most of the cleaning of toys and stuff that DC leave.
Plus any big projects (retile bathroom floor, install whole-house water softener, build enclosure for dishwasher and install that, clean the gutters, coordinate everything for the upcoming renovation). All car maintenance, and computer maintenance. I'm sure there's plenty of other stuff that I forgot about.

I also help out with DC after work and on the weekends.

Re: what chores do the husbands do?

His main chore is garbage although he claims it is my job to put in the bag because it is a 50/50 relationship Chat Icon. He will start the laundry if I have been busy and will help me fold it if it is done when he is home.

He really will do anything I ask him to do if it needs to get done and I need help. Since we got a cleaning lady I try and do all the odds and ends while he is at work on Saturdays.

Re: what chores do the husbands do?

He always does the dishes (on his own) and take out the garbage (after I tell him to). On occasion, he will clean the bathroom. We send our laundry out. I do all of the cooking and vacuuming, dusting etc. and I put the clothes away.

Re: what chores do the husbands do?

Consistently, he takes out the garbage and brings the cans back in, does all the outdoor chores (lawn mowing, sprinkler fixing, etc.), and is in charge of dinner once or twice a week.

He's supposed to vaccuum and wash the floors too, but I've been doing it most of the time lately. He's got classes at night (he's a college student in addition to working full time), and has had a lot of studying and paper-writing to do in the evenings, and therefore not as much time to help around the house.

Besides that, if I ask him to, he'll help me fold laundry, put away dishes or straighten up around the house.

Re: what chores do the husbands do?

What ever I ask him to do.

His jobs include:
taking out the garbage and recycling
ironing
vacuuming
doing the dishes
making me tea in the mornings on the weekends and bringing it to bed or wherever I am. Chat Icon

And anything else I ask him to do. We share cleaning the bathroom and cleaning the cat's box.

One thing he never does is laundry. I can't trust him with that. Chat Icon

Re: what chores do the husbands do?

Everything, he's a neat freak who sometimes drives me crazy. I do tend to do the baby's laundry and bathe the dogs. We tag team the whole house and always pick up after ourselves.

He does everything - honestly - I'm not a good cleaner. And I find no satisfaction in a clean house. Chat Icon
