    Should you share the responsibility of chores, when you share the cost for living?

    I don't remember any rule which says that women are solely responsible for house chores. It should be a sharing duty to run a household. Anything can be compromised. Just find chores that may be suited to each one, and for those which does not really interest both of you, that's where you compromise when and who will do it. Just have fun.

    I think the idea is reinforced a lot in the media.  If you take a look at a lot of the commercials on t.v. for instance, most of them have women in cleaning commercials and home care commercials.  Women are portrayed in most places as the caregivers and part of this role is to take care of the home.

    It doesn't say it anywhere. Historically when women were home all day and their men were working cleaning the house, doing laundry, and cooking was how they contributed to the marriage. Today most marriages are comprised of two working spouses but women tend to do most of the house cleaning. It usually has nothing to do with their men (demanding or asking) them to do it. Women by in large take more pride in having a clean house then most men do. What would happen if a woman chose NOT to clean the house? I suppose the answer would be different for every relationship. Maybe you should try it and see what happens. :-)
    On another note I guess it's also not written anywhere that a man is suppose to mow the law, take out the trash, fix things around the house,  move heavy furniture/items,or be the official bug killer. In the end everyone does things by (choice).

    There's no hard and fast rule to look at, it just ended up as tradition.  It used to be that how women contributed to the community was to do the work related to home and hearth while the men went out to hunt and bring in the food.  Men have always taken the easier way out. LOL!

    I have not come across any such rule anywhere. These trends have developed due to social needs of our parents, grandparents and ancestors.
    A woman used to be handicapped due to physiological reasons during child birth and also each time she used to get her periods. As a result of this women found it convenient to stay at home and take care of lighter duties while men went out hunting or working in fields and other strenuous jobs.
    Later this became a trend and both men and women have taken undue advantage of it. In India there are many women who actually enjoy staying at home and enjoying life while men go to work. Also there are very possessive men who do not want their women to move out.
    I feel this is a natural trend coming down from ages and will continue forever.

    This is where people get that saying from
    King James Version    
    1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine: 2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.

    3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; 4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, 5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
