Ya know, since we moved last month, my hisband has taken care of what are essentially all my horses, four of them (here at the house). I've been sick, so he doesn't really complain. That said, healso takes care of my cats ( im pregnant, we are not supposed to touch cat litter), the puppies, and the chickens.
When Im feeling ok, I clean the godforsaken mess he and my son make all over the house, wash the laundry and mess of dishes and apply for jobs. Soon we will be going to school again, but I dont really expect the division of labor to change until after baby...
Anyway, my point is that we have a division of labor that is agreeable to the both of us. And thats important. You best bet we have discussions when one of us feels overwhelmed, and sometimes we modify and exchange. This is important! Dont do all the work, or you'll be STUCK doing all the work. If he won't listen or change, stop helping. Dont be a doormat, its a hard niche to break out of.
