Most of us men don't truly know our own minds.
I will admit openly, that as a young man I did as little as humanly possible towards any domestic tasks.
Most of the time this did not matter, as I was single and living alone. I much preferred visiting ladies houses, as they were far better looked after than mine.
By the time I got married for the second time [ first wife and I did not split because of domestic reasons; she was a b###h. ] I began to appreciate the necessity of sharing in all things, OH worked nearly as long hours as I did.
I would not try to pretend that chores are split evenly, even though she works and I don't.
As Dove says I now really enjoy many of the tasks I do perform, such as most of the cooking and the SM shopping.
We do need strong hints though. There are still many times when OH has to remind me, in less than subtle tones, that she is busy, could I possibly pull my finger out and help.
Dove, we are well aware that you try to make us think that we come up with certain ideas, when we know it was actually your idea in the first place. Doing things that way probably means everyone is kept happy.
