I’m a teacher, so I’m off during the June holidays. I guess I didn’t realize that during this time every year, I must become the sole person responsible for housecleaning, according to my partner.
I’m confused to say the least. Like we both live here, why is sharing the weight so hard? I’ll keep the house clean for a few days, then stop doing anything to it for a couple days, and instead of cleaning what is bothering him, he gets mad at me when I ask him for help cleaning that thing.
I’m going to add that these past few months have been kinda traumatic. I had an emotional outbreak, which cost me my last job. I have since signed a contract for somewhere else, but it really just made me feel super worthless hearing him speak about what my responsibilities are. I’m supposed to be an unpaid maid during the summers?
He told me to make a chart of the house tasks and when they need to be done, so I did. I just don’t know what to think. He’s going to help from now on, but he talked to me like I was stupid and below him.
He said something along the lines of, “I’m sorry you can’t live up to my expectations.” What? How is that an apology? It sounded like it was said to bring me down.
Who agree that partners should share the housework?
