Is it just the CLEANING of the house, or does it also include all the picking up? Should the SAHP be responsible for even picking up after the WOHP?
Does it include doing all of the cooking, setting of the table, cleaning off of the table, doing the dishes, and cleaning up the kitchen after meals?
Does it include yard work? Should the SAHP be responsible for all of the weed eating and mowing and fertilizing and leave gathering and gardening, etc?
Does it include car maintenance? Is the SAHP responsible for all oil changes, car cleanings (inside and out), regular maintenance, etc?
Does it include only the major cleaning of the house such as vacuuming, dusting, bathrooms, moping, cleaning out the fridge, laundry etc? Or is it also the smaller things like picking up the toys from the living room floor or straightening up the bathroom after bath time?
Does it include all of the family errands such as paying the bills, grocery shopping, renewing the tag for the car, running to the bank, etc?
My view is that it varies based on each individual family. There is no "MUST" or "SHOULD" in this....but then, that is just my opinion. :)
