just thinking if husbands here do really help their wives and what household chores in particular do you do? There were husbands who would say why should i do that? in the first place i'm the one working.. then leave everything to his wife. In my opinion, if we love our wife dearly we should help her do the chores as household chores never ends from waking up till midnight. What do you think?

My husband does not help very much with chores. He does do the outside like cutting grass but that is about it. It is getting harder for me to keep up with the household chores now since I am 7 months pregnant. I am getting more and more tired. It takes alot longer to do the chores than it used to. But I do have to say that during my last pregnancy when I was on bedrest my husband did do most of the chores by himself. Even if he did complain a little. It took a lot of getting used to when we got married for me to do all the chores by myself because I grew up in a house where my father did all the cooking and cleaning and my husband grew up where his mother did all the cooking and cleaning. But now after being married for 5 years I got the hang of it. It just took a little time.

i advice you make some arrangements for him to do what you can't, especially on your condition that it's hard to move around picking up things.

My fiancee helps me alot in the house. We both work but he works near to the place we live so he comes home earlier than me. When he get home he cleans around the house, makes the bed, and other regular chore before i reach home. He even chops onions and tomatoes n keeps them ready for me to come n prepare dinner since he isnt a good cook. We have fun cooking together coz he doesnt just sit on the couch n wait. Gosh he even brings me breakfast in bed lol! I do the same to him over the weekends. The only thing he never does is washing his under garments and brushing the loo.hahahaaaaaaa! I love him. Hope he wont change when we marry coming february.

I help my wife with a few things, but not too many. She prefers to do most of the things herself (she thinks I won't do them right, so I don't argue. lol). I help by taking garbage out, helping her bring groceries in from the car, fixing things, and plumbing. Other than that I don't do much around the house. I do the outside stuff, like mow lawn, scoop snow, wash cars, trim trees, landscaping, etc. We are both happy with that, so I guess that is what is important.
