    My boyfriend cleans and cooks because for starts he actually can cook and he’s a very clean person. I can leave things messy for days before it starts to get on my nerves, it gets on his nerves right away so he’s cleaning all the time. I try to compromise and help him out though because I know it bothers him. Some of these comments are very sexist. It would be nice to see men and women govern the world through democratic means equally and as far as drivers go I am pretty sure both genders have their fair share of terrible drivers and if one person in the relationship prefers doing the homemaking, whether they are a man or woman, that’s up to them and their partner. Every relationship is different.
