Guy's Take On : Sharing Responsibilities in the Home

Monday, February 9, 2015
Guy Meets Girl; Girl and Guy fall in love then they move in together. Apart from learning all the ins and outs of living with a new person , there comes sharing responsibilities. This week , we hear a guy's take on sharing responsibilities in the home.


THE CHORES


Chores should be shared by couples

I believe this should be equal , each person should pick a chore they know they can do well. I'm not a Kitchen person ( at all ) so I leave that to her, I help by making sure I've scraped the food off my plate because I know she hates that and I also take out the Garbage. I also don't mind doing things outside like sweeping the Yard and cutting the grass and I help with sweeping the House as well . We pick a day out of the week when we are both home and use that as cleaning day. During the week , we try our best to make sure things go where they are suppose to and we try to just clean up after ourselves so cleaning day is not like "Labour Day" with the amount of work.


FINANCES


Budgeting is important in every Relationship
My background is in Finances so from we started dating she always would say "when things get serious , you will handle the money". I do the Budget and make sure Bills are paid on time, we put away Savings and have a little fun from what's left over. In most relationships the Bulk of the financial responsibility falls on the man ... I don't mind it at all because I enjoy working so we can both have a good life. The thing I don't like is some women who don't want to work then expect the man to do everything. I don't support this at all. Times are hard and it's difficult to find a job, but at least try. That's kinda like living at home with your Parents and expect them to do everything for you. I believe that 2 incomes are better than one.

Couples! How do you share responsibilities?

  1. My husband is the type of guy that will see something that needs to be done and do it. He definitely does his share.

  2. I do the majority of the indoor chores and hubby does the outside ones. But if I ask him for help, he always pitches in. I handle the majority of the finances, but we discuss the budget at least monthly. It's important to communicate about those things!

  3. I think we share the load pretty equally. My husband is better at some things and I'm better at others so it all works out!

  8. After working 6 days a week, my hubby will do a couple of chores, but that is about max for him. I am ok with that tho.

  9. Well, I just found out my husband can actually cook! He slipped up and cooked a fabulous meal for the kids when I was out of town recently so now he's busted. 1 day a week cooking duty for him!

  12. I definitely think that chores should be equal. I also think that whoever can handle the finances best should probably be in charge.

  13. I love that you divide chores. I know some houses where the women work and do all the chores. That is not cool.

  14. I am fortunate to have a hubby who really does a lot around the house. He just loaded the dishwasher!

  15. I have to remind my husband that this is an equal partnership, but he truly is great about helping out. tonight for example he cooked dinner, cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed the entire house and did his laundry. Pretty decent for a monday!

  16. I think it's good to split the chores evenly too. I've always done the finances so I'm the expert! Some of the other chores, not so much!

  18. I take care of my daughter for the most part and household responsibilities. My husband does all of the finances though. I think this is always a challenge with couples.

  19. My guy takes care of cleaning the bathroom, because that's an area that I just hate to do. It works out well.

  21. My soon to be ex was pretty good at doing his share since he was home most of the time anyway. I do believe in it being equal and you're right, 2 jobs are better than 1.

  22. My hubby does his share of chores and also takes on the finances. We have switched back and forth with chores & finances depending on what was going on in our lives. I'm better at cleaning - he is cooking and we are our best doing finances together.

  23. I like it is very important for everyone in the family to do their own share. It helps eliminate resentment and created a partner environment,

  24. Well, it has been a battle and at times we still have words over chores... ha. Hubby does finances and we have a maid twice a month, but other than that, I expect the kids to pick up their rooms and play room at least once a week and pick up the living room every night before bed. Meanwhile, I do all the dusting, vacuuming, laundry, etc...
