I think my husband and I have a good marriage. We’ve been together for a long time, and we have a routine that works for us. We aren’t perfect, and we have our issues, but for the most part we work as a team and only fight when it’s absolutely necessary. We split all of our household responsibilities down the middle, and it works for us. I take care of paying our utilities and adt monthly fee, and he pays the mortgage. He takes the kids to school in the morning, and I pick them up in the afternoons. He cooks dinner three days a week, I cook dinner three days a week, and one night we go out to dinner at a place the kids choose. I am lucky to have a husband who takes responsibility for what goes on in the home. He understands that I work just as much as he does, and that if we don’t work together, our family will suffer. Some of his friends give him a hard time and call him Mr. Mom, but he is proud of how we operate.
