It’s not of the ordinary sort.
One husband has taken to Reddit to share his resentment towards his wife because according to him, she doesn’t clean enough.
“My wife does not help clean, not unless I practically beg her, and even then she does minimal work, like pick up the living room or kitchen a little bit and vacuum one of the rooms, she might do dishes,” he writes.
“I can’t remember the last time she did laundry, or even put away laundry that I asked her to. We both work, I make considerably more than her, and work longer hours. We have two children, 3 and 9,” the husband continued.
He goes on to explain that he is not a ‘neat freak’ but hates that his wife doesn’t take her dirty dishes to the sink, throw her rubbish away or put laundry in the hamper.
What bothers the husband the most is, “She leaves all kinds of wrappers and rubbish wherever, she doesn't really drop them on the floor, but they'll end up there. She leaves cups, plates, bowls, etc wherever. On the coffee table, table, counters, end tables, next to the couch, and it doesn't matter if there's food or drink left in them. Shoes get taken off wherever.”
It seems to just get worse from there.
But when he confronts her about the cleanliness issue, his wife gets upset and says she refuses to spend all of her free time cleaning to make her partner happy.
His requests don’t seem that unreasonable either. “I just that she clean up after herself, help me clean up after the kids, do an equal share in the work. When she's not working all she does is watch TV and play Facebook games. Time that could be much better spent providing a better environment for us and our kids and after providing the environment, it could be spent interacting with the kids,” the post reads.
What the husband wants to how is, is he wrong? What should he do?
“She asks me if I'm happy, I say yes, mostly to protect her feelings and avoid a huge fight, she has a tendency to overreact, threatening to take the kids and leave,” he concludes.
