some people associate SAH as this spoiled opportunity with feet kicked up all day because s/he doesn't have to work but to reverse that, friend and me were talking (a she and i exchange) and the subject of chores, who plans most dinners and things like that were brought up.

I think what you are describing falls outside of the definition of marriage. Or at least a successful marriage.

From experience of living in a household with a SAHM and with my dh being home some days when I am working, I do think the WOHP could and does get spoiled.

If my dh is off from work, he will run errands, do housework, cook dinner. Things that we would do together but it is less for me when I get home.

For me personally I could say dh was spoiled when i was a SAHM when it came to the responsibilities of the kids and house... while he was working

someobdy else in this thread shared something similar, about both working husband and wife at home feeling equally spoiled. i can see that and agree when you put it that way, thanks.
