To you all family men out there,if you should choose between office work earning money for family and doing household tasks. Which one will you choose? Personally, I don't care who should do what in my family. As long as we could support each other. What is your choice? please, let us know. BR.b

well I am a woman and my men always did whatever needed to be done, so there was never an issue of you should do this or that, we shared everything together.

I did but my cousin who is a man does all the cooking in his house because his wife doesn't cook, the same with one of my girlfriends, she doesn't cook and her husband does.

I've always been the worker, as my partner was studying. However, more recently I've become sick so lost my job. I now write at home for a bit of cash. As far as household stuff goes, she tidies and dusts. She cleans the bath and loo. I hoover, clean floors and walls, cook and do the shopping. We pretty much share all tasks, within our physical abilities (I can reach higher, for example!). When we have kids, I can be pretty sure it'll be very much a 50/50 share of time, work and so on. Given a choice, I'd like us both to work part-time and be at home part-time. That is, a 50/50 across the board. She agrees, as long as she doesn't have to cook (she hates that!). lol!

We live on a ranch, everyone does a little bit of everything. It's all work that has to be done so we both do what's needed.

Hi djonghs This is shankar from India.As I am a male I always prefer to choose office work for earning money rather than doing household tasks.Somehow I can interfere in household tasks for my family where ever required.

i think the idea is to cooperate and help out each other so that the burden is not felt by any one member alone..
