Good for you. Everyone has to figure this stuff out for themselves, and I suspect that every happy couple does that together, not by paying attention to other's advice.
What makes BF and I happy together, or seems like a fair sharing of joint burdens, is about us - I wouldn't assume that it would work for someone else - and I would assume that anyone else's system would work for us.
I think I might know what's going on with SIL, though. She's read it, she is hoping that by doing as the book suggests she'll get something she wants (happier relationship, more attention from hubby/BF, praise from society as a 'good wife' or 'wife material' or possibly some other award), but she's not certain, so she's recruiting others who will either hopefully support her and tell her this is a good way of getting her object, or she will get attention for her efforts to be a good wife/potential wife.
