    Guys only:
    1. What mistake(s) did you make letting your wife find out that you could cook, clean house, wash clothes/dishes, (ad nauseum) before or shortly after you married her? Are you now stuck with that job for life? Did your father not teach you better; did he try? Did you fall for that "women's lib" nonsense that marriage is a 50/50 proposition on everything and all jobs?
    2. Did your bride start off "teaching" you how to do housework, cook, etc.?
    3. What evasive actions did you take to get out of the situations in #1 and #2?
    4. What would you do different if you could start over?
    5. What advice do you have for men who are considering getting married?

    my DH never cooks rarely cleans house and I dont let him near the laundry.But I dont have to do any yard work build the coops or work on the cars(all of which I can do) so I think of it as an even trade off.

    As for #5, I suggest learning the phrase:
    "You're right, Honey. I'm wrong. I'm sorry" and use it frequently.
