The time my husband was like… do you really want to start obliging gender stereotypes in this relationship?

27 Nov

And I said, no.

The other day I said to my husband, go do (insert something) in the yard.

And he was like no.

And I was like, you’re the man, go do it (which is against everything I believe in but I said it).

And he was like, do you really want to start going by gender stereotypes in this relationship?

And I was desperately like, NO. Because holy hell if we did that I’d be screwed.

    When you’re my age, you learn to work around the hyprocrisy. LOL The rule in our house is: I am always right. Even when I’m wrong.(grin)

      Even with my best intentions I’m a hypocrit sometimes. Which is why I try so hard not to judge people. But alas, human nature (my cop out… Lol).

        I think I spelled hypocrite wrong! And I call myself a writer.

    haha – I use to struggle with being fair – hey but after 27 years – I’m like yeah it is good for our kids to see their dad wash dishes and wash his own cloths – me getting the car fixed, oil changed or new tires – eh doesn’t help anyone. Yes, there are some things I see no need for me to do. I can change a tire if i need to and I’ve been known to fix a leak in the sink – so I’m good. We have learned to live by the old rule – If mama ain’t happy nobody’s happy. 🙂

      I think the important part is that everyone feels the arrangement is fair. If not everyone agrees that’s when resentment starts. I struggle with doing my part though because I don’t cook or really go in the kitchen at all. Lol.
