Does anyone else see something wrong with that picture? He never thanks me for picking her up the majority of the time. He doesn't thank me for loading/unloading the dishes, or for doing the laundry. But I thank him when he does anything more than go to work and come home.
I have friends who have clear division of labor in different ways, where their husbands are actually expected to do laundry, dishes, wake up with the baby, etc. Mine has never had such expectations. The tasks are all mine, with him helping out when he sees fit and convenient. The dishes will not pile up if he doesn't touch them for days, I will put them away. The food will not run out, I will make sure we are stocked up. The kids will not go hungry, I will make sure they're fed. I don't blame him at all for any of this, because it is the precedent I have set in our marriage and home. But I wanted to ask fellow MiM's: What kind of precedent do you have in your homes?
