Or just find some one who is willing to do his part....
I'm lucky to be single and know that the most important male figure in my
family (step dad) actually cleans more than other guys I know. And cleans
well. his favorite smell is pine. So the house smells like Pine Sol by
the time he is done! Mom loves it.
Added bonus: he can cook too. OMG I love it when dad cooks...

i read something interesting recently concerning division of housework in a
household. essentially, of the three most-common couple arrangements (only
couples were considered, it seems) lesbian households had the most equal
division of housework, followed by heterosexual couples, followed by
homosexual male couples.
the moral of this story seems to be that in general, it's _men_ who somehow
create inequality of housework regardless of other factors. although i think
we all knew that, actually :-) the interesting part is that where there's 2
men involved, you'd logically assume there's going to be more equality, and
yet, one poor sod in the household _still_ ends up doing it all!
i want to know how to be the bloke who gets away with doing nothing. (which
will be particularly challenging as i am a woman.)
My wife doesnt care about the house, I do the laundry, cleaning and
some cooking as well as yard and other chores.
Although I REFUSE to put my wifes clothes away, they end up in a pile.

I don't think I the numbers look bigger than they are. 358 is only 7
hours a week. Loading and unloading our dishwasher each week must
account for almost an hour. Add in vacuming several times a week,
wiping down bathroom, etc, etc, I'm surrprised that people only spend
7 hours a week cleaning up.
I can't account for all the time, since we clean as we go, but 7 hours
sounds light, considering I'm picking up after a 4 year old, after he
tries to clean up. :D
