Got an Answer?
😆😆😆 you should consider yourself lucky. My useless husband won't even wash up so you're doing ok luv.
You seem like you'd be very hard to live with so I think you should be happy he hasn't left you for a younger model yet. There's always a positive
My husband has never done any house work in 10 years! And I mean nothing!
Mine is the same, and I’ve had this discussion with friends...”isn’t it funny that if you ask a woman to do the dishes, she will do the dishes, check to make sure there are no other dishes to clean that might be left in other parts of the house, wipe the benches and put everything back in its proper place so the kitchen surfaces are clean and tidy and dishes are done. If you ask a man to do the dishes he will do the dishes only, and only the dishes within immediate reach of the sink.” I think it is pretty common, that doesn’t make it right, but at least you aren’t alone. I don’t ask him to do dishes anymore, but I also don’t wash his clothes anymore or make him lunch and I only cook about 3 nights a week, so that helps lessen my resentment 😁
I understand how this would be annoying, but surely after 26 years you would have been able to adapt to the situation? Like making sure everything you want washed is stacked next to the sink, and accepting that wiping benches is your thing. It's not fair that you have to do it, but for 5-10 minutes effort you could save your sanity. If you are doing all the housework, as another poster suggested stop doing something that directly affects him, like his washing.
If he is kind, respectful and loves you, then look past it. Just don't wash his clothes or something.
You'd think you'd just have told him seeing as it's been so long
