Ok, I am definately going to be in the minority on this one and I actually wasn't even going to post.
A small amount of background info that I think is pertinant to my way of thinking. My mother has never had a job outside of the house and has always done 100% of the housework while my Dad works. Her mother, my grandmother, was the same way. Neither of them ever drove a car or held a job their entire lives (err, Mom is still alive but she definately won't be getting a job).
I have lived with my fiance for 7 years and we have been engaged for almost a year. I do all of the work around the house and have no complaints about it. When I say all, I mean all. The laundry, cooking, cleaning, taking care of the animals, taking the garbage to the outside cans, doing all of the shopping, taking care of the animals, everything. I am a neat freak and I spend about 4-5 hours on the weekend doing a deep clean which includes dusting, scrubbing bathrooms, the wood floors, etc. Each evening when I get home from work I spend about 20 minutes vacuuming and straightening up. I like the house to be spotless. I enjoy doing all of the domestic responsibilities and actually feel like it is my responsibility to take care of him. That comes from my mother I am sure. The problem is that when my mother raised me that way she didn't take into account that I would be working full time and going to school as well. So, my day starts at 4:30am and ends at 10:00 or so in the evenings. Thank goodness we don't have any full time kids (he has a son who comes to stay with us often though).
My fiance knows he is spoiled and all of his friends tell him he is as well.
I like taking care of him and doing all of these things on my own. There are a few things that make it worth it to me. When I am sick or need a break, he will help me with anything I ask him to help with. He has no expectations of how clean the house should be, so he has never once complained about it being messy. On some occasions I get a little backed up and laundry gets piled up or something. We never argue about the housework like MOST of the other people I know do. This just really works out for us.
Ok, I am waiting for everyone to tell me that I have set the women's movement back lightyears
