I'm wondering how many husbnds know how to do housework & do it regularly? And I'm talking everything, & without having to be asked. I HATE house work, & only do as little as I have to & I'm a SAHM. But my husband does it all the time, he works 12-14 hours but still comes home & cleans. I cook, he loves his food, but I never have to ask him to do anything, he just goes right ahead & does it. He never complains, he just does it. I know he's the exception, he has 5 brothers & none of them do it, much to my SIL's complaints, but when my DH is around them, they do it (he's the eldest, we're from a culture where the eldest son can give others a 'look' & they know what it means lol.) When I asked my DH why other men have a problem doing house work, he says that men are generally lazy, & are allowed to get away with it. Most of our friends know that my DH does the majority of the housework, & think I should count my self lucky, but I think if it were the other way around, it would just be expected.
