Does he or she admit that? tell me the funniest or the worst experience you had! Mine was paying bills. My husband always writes the larger amount which is actually amount after interest for late payment, so not the actual bill itself (because we are not late!). I keep telling him that so now he lets me handle them :)

This is a great question. I am a SAHM with four kids and I manage cooking all the meals, keeping the house clean,bathing and dressing the children,homeschooling my older children, and other houselhold chores on a daily basis ,literally without any help. Now I have left all the children in his care for 2 days last fall(with my stepdaughter there to help) to attend my high school reunion and when I returned the house looked like it had been dumped upside down!!! I was upset about the house being a mess but the kids had survived, they were fed(loads of junk food ) and they actually did have a good time. It was a learning experience, at least I know he is capable of sustaining the kids without injury for a couple of days !!(I can only dream that he would keep the house clean!!) What's a stay at home mom to do? Never take a trip alone again?

Modesty aside, I do almost everything way better than my bf. except for driving because i don't know how. It frustrated him because he was addicted this RPG game, and basically i cannot relate to it. So what i did was i started playing the same game, and after a few weeks, i have the same level of skills than my bf. he got frustrated because of it. He knows i do math better, i earn more, i work faster, i basically do almost everything better than him. good thing it is not an issue in our relationship. I never made him feel inferior in anyway, except of course when i started playing his RPG game... so i stopped before it turns into an issue.

I'm better at any kind of home repair work than my boyfriend is. I can drywall, plaster, paint, fix minor plumbing problems, etc. I'm also really good at building things, which is something my boyfriend's not too great at. However, he writes much better poetry than I do...and is a better cook most of the time.

He does admit it...and doesn't have a problem with it. Neither of us really cares much for traditional gender roles, so he doesn't feel the need to be the handyman.

I can fix things better than my husband. I am the handywoman. I will climb on the roof to unblock the gutters. I am more practical & creative while he is alot better with the financial side of things.

my husband gets really angry when he pays the bills so he is no longer aloud to do that LOL. Grocery shopping is also not a good thing for him to do- he never buys whats on sale and spends too much money (cause he shops when he's hungry) and gets frustrated trying to put things away (he's not very good at arranging things in the fridge or cabinet). LOL

hahaha that's funny, he gets angry paying bills so he is not allowed to do that :) I get angry paying bills but I still have to do that since my husband can't care less :) yes I heard you can't do grocery when you're hungry since you'll take just everything you don't end up eating them

Well if you find a better paying job then he will not be in that position anymore. It will get better, you'll see
