Tip number two:
Do your manly duties.
Being the man of the household doesn’t just mean to be the spiritual head, the example and the protector. It also means to be the man, plain and simple. Do your manly duties, and keep on top of them. There seems to be an unwritten rule of chores that are the husband’s and chores that are the wife’s. And then there are those chores that don’t fall into either category that you will have to sort out between you.
- Vehicle maintenance (schedule or perform service)
- Home repair/renovation
- Home maintenance (change the furnace filter, fill the water softener, clean the outdoor dryer lint trap)
- Outdoor maintenance (rake the leaves, shovel the snow, salt the ice, cut the grass)
- Kill the mice
