A Wife: I just don't understand how we ended up this way. My husband and I both go to work every day, but somehow I end up being the one who's better at cooking, better at cleaning, and better at dealing with our three children. He's the one who's better at mowing the lawn, cooking the chicken that I prepare on the grill, and taking care of the oil change in our cars every five months or so. Any time I complain, or point out how unfair this seems to me, he just says, “Yeah, but you're the one who's good at all that stuff” And then I don't know what answer to give. All I know is that it makes me grit my teeth!
A Wife: When I was sick with the flu, I had a temperature of 102 degrees, and I could barely move out of the bed. It was Saturday, and my husband was home, but I think he asked me only once if he could bring me a drink. That was it. But when he's sick, I'm supposed to be his on demand nurse, delivering drinks and cold cloths and aspirins. I don't understand why he can't take care of me the way I take care of him.
A Husband: I admit that my wife is better than me at a lot of things. I don't understand about arranging dinners with our friends, like whose turn it is to cook or whatever. She does all that, and I just go with the flow. If it's at our house, fine, but she's in charge of everything. I figure that's just not part of my job description.
