My husband has never liked cleaning, nor does he help out, unless i ask him. Even when I ask, 85 % of the time he tells me he will do it later and he never does or he doesn't have time. Never ever has he surprised me with helping out by catching up the laundry or cleaning the dishes in the sink. He just doesn't. I don't mind because he works his but off everyday and provides financial stability for the family, which I am grateful for. Yesterday, however, he stopped at my girlfriends house, while she was at work and my husband and a buddy of his cleaned her house. I feel betrayed and hurt. She was so surprised and so happy. My husband said that he did it to show his appreciation for her because she has helped us out before. We help each other out all the time. Never in the three years that we have been married have I ever come home to him having cleaned the house. I have been telling him for years that the sexiest thing he could do was to help out with the cleaning without me having to ask for help. He take time out of his busy day to help clean my friends house because she works hard all day and he thought it would be a nice break for her, but can't be bothered to do it for me. I guess since I am not out making money and working hard, I am not worthy of such a wonderful surprise.
