My husband has gotten a lot better, but for awhile everything fell to me. Working, housework, shopping, cooking, paying bills....he was going to school. (and that's ALL he did) I admit that for awhile I began to resent him, thinking "if you're home all day can't you at least VACUUM??" He's catching on, but it's still more like 70/30.
How about a working Mom? What do you think her role should be? Should she still have to do all the same things a sahm does AND work outside the home on top of it?
(please don't think my dh is a totally lazy guy. He's getting better but I've had to really communicate to him that I need his help, and then just let go of the stuff that bugged me, like a not so perfectly clean house!)
