On a more serious note, while DW and I don't have any kids, we do both work in similar jobs - and yes, we do try to split the housework 50/50. Why shouldn't we?

When we got married, my grandmother told me, "Since she works, you need to do half the housework." Sounds reasonable to me.

This thread gives a lot of insight into the Eliot Spitzer philosophy of getting some nookie.......

I will put on a little French maid outfit and do 50% of the housework when my DW puts on a carpenter's belt and does 50% of the construction/maintenance. I do the heavy tasks such as the building of our houses (in off hours from my paying job) and the on going maintenance and new construction projects along with maintaining several acres of yard plus all the mechanical maintenance on our vehicles, boats, RV.

Seeing me in a little French maid outfit would not be a pretty sight therefore I do not expect that will happen in my lifetime.

I consider construction and maintenance to be 'housework'. Perhaps 'householdwork' would be a better term. 50/50 to me doesn't mean DW and I do exactly half of each task, we split up the overall work so that it seems equitable to us.

For example, I do all of the dog vomit cleanup.

Our dog is so housebroken that when she needs to vomit, she tries to go outside. A couple of times if we've been around, she'll bark and bark at the side door, and as soon as we let her out she jogs to the grass and pukes.

But more often than not, we wake up to find a pile of doggie glurge on the floor right up against the floor. At least she tried.

Hilarious!!! And absolutely correct. A fantasy world, but one that would leave many begging for more!

I didnt open this thread for the longest time out of sheer fear.

My wife took a picture of me with 6 month old Gabe in a Baby Bjorn on my chest and i'm pushing a vacuum cleaner around the living room. Whenever she see's it, she giggles. No additional sex is involved.

So there goes THAT theory.

And sex in a Mustang is quite doable. I'm not sure about those little Pinto based ones they were trying to foist on us in the mid 70's, but the earlier ones worked fine. You had to avoid the back seat and have one of the windows down, but no problem.

Eh, then you'd need both windows down.

And a stick. Some putty. And an old pair of nylons.

Okay, in the interests of disclosure, I *was* 16 at the time.

Only problem is that I was only 7 in 1969...
