I had the same thoughts! I see so many of my friends slipping into the primary domestic caretaker role as we all partner up & cohabitate. No freaking way would I ever let someone off the hook for household chores, & I’m so grateful I found my current partner who wouldn’t dream of being let off the hook! Now, we definitely have our strengths (I hate taking out the recycling but am much better at remembering to vacuum) but there are days when he does my dishes because I’m feeling lazy, & I don’t think I’ve ever wiped down our countertop or scrubbed the bathtub since we moved in together five months ago.

That “but I looooove hiiimmmmm” card can go straight into the trashcan (which my boyfriend will lovingly take out for me).
