My boyfriend likes cleaning. I like making tons of money. It all evens out in the end.

You have to do housework sometimes if you want them to remember how to do it right. Sometimes you just get tired of yelling and only a demostration will get the point across.

Sharing the housework = sharing of more sex?

My husband does all the housework clad only in a French maid's outfit, fishnet stockings, and heels.
Quite lovely, actually.

If she cooks, I do the dishes. If I cook, she does the dishes. I do the laundry, she cleans the apartment. I take care of the cars, she handles the bills. Life works out pretty well this way.

We're happiest when we hire a cleaner and don't ever argue about whose turn it is to scrub the toilet.

yep, that's why I vacuum for 3 hours every other night.

Special Circumstances aside (Hi Mr. Banks!), I'm surprised by how so many people just can't seem to naturally reach this state. It's about as reasonable and efficient as it gets.

My close friend and roommate is a dikey as hell lesbian who considers herself to be a man. She still nags me about doing housework and cleaning. Anytime you live with any human being with a vagina you will be nagged.

Without reading the article (because who the hell would do that?), are these men also sole providers for a single income family?

Because division of labor has to include division of ACTUAL labor, and 'I work for 9-12 hours a day' is a hell of a good excuse for not wanting to come home and help the person who's been sitting on her ass all day with chores.

But if you're both working, then just divide stuff up according to who hates doing what the least, I don't think it has to be a 1:1 thing, or divided (or not divided) along sex-history lines or whatever.

Or just hire a damned housekeeper or something to come in once a week.

This is all said safely from my fortress of solitude which has never been breached by that foul female form for severe lengths of time, so farking ignore what I'm saying if you have two damned brain cells rattling around up there.

I find it works best if everyone just does what they won't mind doing more than the other person, ie: one person doesn't mind doing the dishes but hates taking out the trash and the other person is the opposite so it works itself out. 2 mature adults are capable of dividing the housework without it even having to be discussed unless one of the people just becomes completely negligent in their responsibilities in the sense that they don't do it at all and it's necessary to be done. Then again, I don't find many chores to be necessary to do every day. Of course if one person works and the other doesn't, the one who doesn't work should be doing most of the housework.

I think the trap that many women fall into is that they disregard things like taking out the trash, killing insects, carrying heavy stuff, fixing appliances, setting up electronics, running errands, mowing the law, etc. These are jobs that men usually take on and they are just as important to do as the cleaning part. You just have to see it as a trade off - assuming your mate contributes which I'm not sure is always the case, but then you're probably with the wrong person, unless you have some sort of arrangement like one not working and one working.

People seem to get bent out of shape over this stuff. You just have to sit back and think about what the other person does for you and then appreciate that - unless they're a totally selfish ass that literally does nothing.

I cook, she does dishes. I do yard work, she does laundry. I spend the time making the big bucks, she does the housework.

That is, when the slaves I mean kids aren't home to do it for us.

Do all these women alos share the yard work? You know, mowing the lawn, cleaning the gutters, shoveling snow, raking leaves, edging walks etc etc.

Yeah, I didn't think so.

I do the outside chores, she does the inside ones. Pretty simple.

Typically, I do chores and cooking because I enjoy having food and I live in the place. Has pretty much applied when I've lived with a girlfriend for about the same reasons.

Happiness isn't really the goal, save in the Aristotelian sense.

I ike taking out the trash = 2 minute job,
killing insects = 5 seconds and a new product called insect spray means women often do this.
, carrying heavy stuff = when you buy it or moving house average about a once a 6 month job
, fixing appliances = only some men and some women once again maybe averaging a once a 6 month job,
setting up electronics = When they are bought and once again averaging once a 6 month job. Also the person who buys them usually for something they want to do sets it up and that includes women. running errands = What errands do they run? No only joking women do as many errands as men so that cancels that out ,
mowing the law, = what once a week in Summer and once a month to 6 weeks in winter.

So the list you have shown is that men do a few things on very rare occassions and the other things they do women do just as often.

Now women

Dishes = 10 minutes 3 times a day.

Washing = 1 hour 5 times a week.

Vacuuming = 1 hour 2 times a week

Bathrooms and toilets = 1 hour 2 times a week.

cooking dinner = 40 minutes everyday.
getting breakfast = 20 minutes everyday.
cutting lunches = 15 minutes everday.

Bathing children = 40 minutes everyday.

Putting children to bed = 30 minutes everyday.

Attending to all the wants of children i.e reading, homework, getting clothes for the next day and all the constant questions and attention seeking etc = 2 hours a day.

Can you tell the difference?

But then again I am stereotyping because most people realise that running a house takes work and they share all chores and don't divide them down sexist lines.

Of course. "Vagina" is an anagram for "I va nag", which itself is Latin for "I go nag".

Guest: Washing = 1 hour 5 times a week.


How the bloody fark do you generate that much laundry? That was my chore when I was a kid, and with a five-person family with three muddy dogs and regular farm-style outdoor work we didn't generate more than like 15 minutes of sorting and half an hour of folding a week. Maybe an extra five minutes on the front end to apply stain remover of an extra 20 on the back end

Does your house not have washing machines or dryers, maybe? You're using one of those wavy board things in the stream?

Bathing children = 40 minutes everyday.

Why would you... really? Really?

I think your problem may be that you suck terribly at domestic chores, not that you do a disproportionate amount of the work, is what I'm saying here.
 
2012-06-27 11:13:43 PM
Passive agressive. "Is that your underwear in the corner". "Yes".

fark you if you can't say "Will you please put your underwear in the laundry hamper".
 
2012-06-27 11:19:28 PM
And , by the way, there are only two phrases a man needs to know to have a conversation with a woman: "yes dear" (obvious) , and "Oh pleeease!", which covers everything else from "May I buy another shotgun" to "Are we gonna fark tonight?".

Why would the person bringing home the salary be expected to do work around the house? Isn't that what the person who sits on their ass at home all day is expected to do?
 
2012-06-27 11:44:19 PM
If person A makes 80/hour doing work and person B makes 15/hour, what sense does it make for person A to give up their potential earnings to do manual house labor? Sorry ladies (and some men), but if you want the labor divided differently, show us how it benefits the bottom line.

Here's a nerd way of seeing it:

if(partner1.work == True and partner2.work == True):
if(partner1.workLoad > partner2.workLoad):
partner1.chores = partner1.workLoad - partner2.workLoad
partner2.chores = choresTotal - partner1.chores
elif(partner2.workLoad > partner1.workLoad):
partner2.chores = partner2.workLoad - partner1.workLoad
partner1.chores = choresTotal - partner2.chores
else:
partner1.chores = choresTotal / 2
partner2.chores = partner1.chores
elif(partner1.work == False and partner2.work == True):
partner1.chores = choresTotal
else:
partner2.chores = choresTotal

//I'm a terrible programmer.

It is remembering the nagging that keeps me from dating. I think, "why don't I give in and get another girlfriend?" Then I imagine 6 months in the future, broke, unable to have sex, stuck with what sounds like the yipping of a hyena no matter where I go in the house, then look at the peace I have now.
No, never again, not worth the trouble.
