Some women complain about their husbands as they are too lazy to do some housework. Actually we had talked about it before marriage. Basically we will share the housework together. I have to say that in this aspect he is better than other men. At least sometimes he can clean the dishes, drop the rubbish, cook and go to buy the food. Especially he can take care of our baby, he can have a bath for him all the time. If unfortunately your husband is a lazybone, then you have to try some tricks to make him diligent:)

My husband is really strange some times he will be all about helping out he will do the dishes laudry help with the kids the whole ten yards. Then he has his weeks when he will come home and flop on the couch and thats the end of it.

My husband is great! Sometimes he gets in a cleaning mode and it makes me feel like I'm the one not doing enough! lol We try to split things up though, like he always says that whoever cooks the meal, the other one does the dishes to be fair. He is really wonderful and fortunately is not one of those husbands who expects the wife to do all the housework. I feel very lucky to have such a great husband! :)

its a good thing that we have my MIL at home to help with the chores, not that we tell her to, its just that she volunteers to do things around the house. My husband doesn't mind helping around once in a while. Especially if he is not that tired, sometimes he would even be the one to cook for a meal hehe

I think it is better for you to have a talk with your husband in peace.

I think we will share the housework in the future,because he is a very considerate man,he usually washes clothes with me together and clean the dishes too.and I just do not know why there are so many lazy man they just do not want to do any housework.we are all tired after one day's woek,as a man,he should do housework possitively.

I am lucky my husband will help. I don't think he relizes how much actually needs to be done everyday. a clean house is not the top priority to him. He more worried about the yard getting mowed or that the shed is a mess. when I ask him he will help or when he see and relizes that I need help. I can not say anything about him watching the children,he does it! For the past 3 years I have been the one to work and he has stayed home with the baby and dropped off and picked up the others from school. we have six children and 4 out of the6 have ADHD so our children have to taken to school and picked up. bed time is hell and he has done it all for the past 3 years .

No doubt, your husband is very responsible and understanding. Sice children is not easy to take good care of. We have only one and I also found it's not an easy job.

I am not married right now but as for my boyfriend he will tell you that I say there are three things that my man does not do around the house or any man for that fact is.... dont mow my yard because most men half a** it, dont clean my house because I will do it myself right the first time, dont do no dishes because I dont want to have to redo them to get the grease off of them other then that my boyfriend can do all the rest. And he will tell you that is how I run the house. And my boyfriend will do anything under the sun for me.

My boyfriend says it's "women's work," so he won't do it unless he feels guilty for watching me work, take care of the kids, earn my degree and take care of the house. When that reality hits him, then he'll usually do the dishes or run the vaccuum cleaner. Otherwise, it's just me.

Then you can talk to him in pease and tell him how nice he is if he can do some housework. Housework can be shared, as you and your boyfriend has the responsibility to the family.

If I'm lucky, my husband will help wash dishes on his day off. But I usually don't get any help.
