Exactly!! It is a dilemma today. And then you have surveys going around that divorce rate increases as husbands do more chores. Then men complain that women want to divorce and take all their money. It seems we have to do it all, look good doing it, not nag or complain, and have energy to have sex at the end of the day. Something has to give.
That ain't nuthin' new, Katiecrna. That's been a pet peeve of mine for YEARS.
Women are expected to be Super Woman and do it all
- bring in a paycheck, clean the house, cook the meals, do the food shopping and all menu planning, carry and birth the children then be their primary care taker for life, keep the home fires burning and everything running the way it should, and lavish tons of attention on her oh so deprived husband and become a sex kitten for him at night. Most women don't have time to care for themselves (go to the gym, do their nails, enjoy reading a book, etc. etc.) because they're so damned busy catering to everyone else
in their lives. And the majority of men think anything THEY do to contribute is 'helping HER
' and that she should fall on her knees in gratitude and be sure to thank him and give him a reward for doing it.
You have to love the fools who always use the 'equality' argument when they don't want to pay for dates, yet conveniently FORGET all about 'equality' when it comes to expecting a woman to do the overwhelming majority of the domestic chores and child-rearing instead of doing their EQUAL share. Hypocrites.
I've lost count of how many men whine and complain that they're bored and their sex life sucks and they simply don't understand why their wives - who've worked their damned tails off from 6am and have finally fallen into bed at 10pm EXHAUSTED - aren't eager to cater to their every sexual need.
