And sometimes these discussions lead to brilliant ideas. Like this one from the comments: "You can always pare back the cleaner as you get your boys to pick up more chores of their own. My grandparents had a weekly cleaner when they had little kids, then shifted it to biweekly and then monthly and then just a quarterly deep clean as their 4 children got old enough to do their own laundry, vacuum their own rooms, take turns on bathroom cleaning, etc. (Alas, my family was always too poor for a cleaner when I was a kid!)" Love it.
Want to weigh in? If you're partnered and living with your partner, do you split household chores evenly? If not, are you okay with the division of labor, or silently (or not so silently) resentful?
