I have heard these kinds of stories before. Nobody is ever completely happy.

My partner insists I make the money and maintain the career so she can have nice things. But she doesn't even take care of those things. She makes messes and expects me to clean up. I just want her to be emotionally and financially comfortable, but she wastes all my effort by complaining and acting like her basic life process is my burden. Should I dump her to the curb and find someone who can manage themselves like an adult?

You spent four years being primary breadwinner and doing 90-95% of the household chores.

That's on you. You created that dynamic in your relationship and cemented it for half a decade. Even if nothing changed right now, it would be tough to change it.

But, now your husband got a job where he is busier than ever, and your made that your chore work is going up because he says he won't do any.

You have a few options:
1. Get him to agree with you.
2. Go along with him.
3. Divorce.

Oh, and based on him saying "I'll help but ONLY if and when you ask me" for the past four years, #3 may be the best option. Maybe try involving a counselor, or someone from his family or friend group to tell him what an ass he's being.

"Time consuming job" but the pay checks will potentially be big. So, he signed up for a pyramid scheme he found online?

In fact, let's go out and celebrate right now. We still have some room on the credit card, right?

Sounds like the partner is 6 years old... and is just opening a lemonade stand.

That's not a partner, it's a child.

Luckily, you have no obligation to raise this child.

Kick it out.

If their relationship is CGL she should have included that.

Why is he so special that you have to do the chores of basic living for him? Why are you so insignificant that your exhaustion is okay with him?

I ask this all the time about you consumer drones and your endless demands on service workers, but nobody ever answers me.
So you're just lazy?  That's what I thought.

/and snobby, too.
