Let me tell you a little secret. If you have a handsome man that greets you at the door with a frosted margarita for you, kisses you and tells you how much he missed you during the day, you smell a savory dinner cooking on the stove. He has done the dishes from the night before and vacuumed the entire house. DO NOT, DO NOT ever tell anyone about this, because the moment you step out of your front door, their are at least 100 million other women in the US that will murder you to have this man. THE ANSWER IS NO!!!!!!!!!!!

That plan may work for some couples. It sounds as your lady is objecting. Don't give some friends say unless the friend you mean is Dark Lord!

Your woman has done the cleaning, cooking, laundry, shopping and ironing too. I imagine you will expect her to take care of the garden also. You wonder why she is not always ready to jump in to bed as soon as you enter the door.

To have her do all these jobs you do understand that when you walk in the door each Friday you will hand her your weekly paycheck, uncashed. I am sure additional parts of her job description is to manage the money in the household and give you an allowance when it is warranted.

Dark Lord does that not sound like a fair and equitable plan to share the work in the family.

Thank you everyone for all your replies......

Yes I deff feel my friends are idiots for not helping their wives/girlfriends around the house, as it’s not a women’s place anymore. Things have changed since the days of our parents, where both members have to now go to work in order to support a family and everyone gets tired after a long day at the office and its wrong for them to expect the women to wait on them hand and foot.

My relationship with my wife is based on a 50/50 partnership, where if one is doing the cooking then the other does the dishes and if one did the washing then the other hangs it up etc......Those were the values my mother instilled in me and those are the values I will past on to my son one day.

I personally do not think there is anything wrong with my masculinity by helping my wife do the laundry and dishes. I get to telework about 3 days per week, its alot easier for me to go downstairs once every couple of hours for 10 minutes to load/unload the machine. The reward of appreciation I get when she gets home is worth every minute I spent doing the chores.

And, once in a while, I may actually get a nicer reward after the kids goto sleep.

Hubby does his fair share, and it certainly doesn't make him less of a man, in fact, when I come home from work and he's got the place spotless and our daughter all cleaned up, it's kind of a turn on that he's so thoughtful.

The most important thing to consider here is that helping out around the house makes you a nicer person.

And of course the bonus is you will get more sex...just don't EXPECT more sex...keep on doing it and it will come!

There is absolutely nothing wrong with a man in the kitchen or helping out around the house. It shows he's considerate and not selfish. Plus, if he's doing some of the chores that means there is less for me to do, which means I will be less tired and there will be more time to fool around later on.

Guys..Hint Hint.

When I was married to my first wife, a neighbor lady came over thinking my ex was home (she wasn't). I was in the kitchen with an apron on washing dishes, and didn't even know she was there until she said, "Oh my fucking god...it makes me so horny to see a man in an apron who doesn't mind doing housework."

Nothing drops my panties faster than coming from a long day of work to find the dirty kitchen I left completely spotless. A male receives the title of a man when he does what needs to be done, whatever that may be.

I cannot imagine a woman (outside of maybe some backward conservative religion) thinking along these lines or turning down an offer for help because it's unmanly.

I can see men wanting to think these things, however - it gets them out of doing stuff that nobody likes doing.

LOL Oh my..... The idea that a man can't be manly AND do things around the house always makes me laugh. I am pretty darn manly (if I say so myself), and I cook, I do laundry, I vacuum and even steam clean the carpets, dishes too.... heck, you name it, I do it. I am not a servant, nor feminine. I also shovel all the snow, take out the trash, mow the lawn, fix things when they break, etc. Hell, what would people do if they didn't have a partner? Do things just NOT get done? (rolling eyes)

Again, doing any of those things are not by default showing a man is less "manly". A REAL man knows how to do it all, and does not depend on ANYONE to do things for him. And a REAL man is not afraid to help his woman do ANYTHING, or do it FOR her... not because she can't do it herself, but because he WANTS to.

I have always known my way around the kitchen...
I make a potent chicken curry, can do a tasty BBQ and can bake a bread to top the BBQ.
I have a gift for turning a Fillet into a delicacy and can make you mix dessert without opening the book or you knowing what you are concocting or even entering the kitchen before its time to stick it into the oven...
And I clean the whole mess MYSELF...Always

How'd you get that time machine working? Sounds fascinating! Imagine, actually being to communicate with the 1890s! And you even have friends! You ought to publish this in Nature.

I think it's better if a man has the decency to help around the house. It shows commitment and equality in a relationship

Well said handsome! In my opinion, I think men who aren't afraid to pitch in with the housework to be thoughtful and absolutely sexy. Working together to get all the chores done just means there would be more time for much more enjoyable ways to be together where I could show my appreciation and gratitude for having picked such an amazing man in the first place love3

I think if a man helps around the house, he is more of a man. There is something about a man that can help around the house that just says so much. I also think its sexy when watching a man cook or when a man comes into the kitchen just to help with the dishes. ;)

Me and my partner share the chores around the house, although i hate doing the laundry. I mainly do the rest because she sucks at cooking and cleaning!! If you want a job done right you do it yourself. Although she could be doing a half ass job, because she knows I'll stop her from doing it in the future!Think

For many years I've helped [or, depending on view, hindered] about the house. I'm not often "permitted" to do the cooking, but always clean up after the meal.

I think that's bullshit. It's not the 1950's anymore. If a guy cleans up, that respectful and I see it as kind of almost a natural thing to do. In a relationship, it works both ways and the respect comes both ways. Sorry if I'm sounding harsh. I just hate the whole "women in the kitchen" crap thing. Show some respect guys. Although, I do know not all guys are like that.

My Dark helps all the time....even when i ask him to sit and relax. I enjoy it but when im tired he knows it and surprises me by doing it ALL. I dont think less of him or others for helping around the house....I think hes a better man for doing it.

Plus he does make some great food Shhh

Sharing the load at home allows for more time together. Especially if you are both working.
