Dear husbands, do you know the best thing you could do to let the wifey dearest know that you love her to the moon and back?
Participate in the household chores!
She will love it more than the pretty diamonds and expensive dinners if you share the house cleaning time and everyday chores. At this time and age when both the husband and wife have so many outside commitments, taking care of a house is no longer a woman’s job and it certainly shouldn’t be so. Since both of you are equally invested in turning the bricks and walls into a home, keeping the home neat and clean should be a shared project too. Plus when you are working together for the daily housework, the time required for the job is reduced by half and after all the work you two can find some extra time for play too if you know what I mean.
1. Making beds in the morning
It’s the first task of the day and a quite important one, because nobody likes to come home to after a long, hard day to a rumpled bed. The woman has other household chores to perform every morning before she leaves for work or puts on the ‘Mom on duty’ cloak. So if the husband takes care of the simple task of making the bed every morning, a big part of her morning duties is reduced.
2. Deep clean the house
Because cleanliness is next to godliness, husbands. It takes a lot of time and energy to keep the house squeaky clean. We still make peace with the fact the husbands don’t do the regular dusting and cleaning but helping us maintain the basic cleanliness and participating in the monthly deep cleaning of the house makes our housework load a lot less and our love for you a lot more!
3. When it is time for packing and moving
Join in proactively with the planning and implementation of the huge task of packing and moving would be nice. A little genuine interest and enthusiasm wouldn’t hurt anyone and hey! it’s your home too!

4. Stop complaining about the dust balls living in the AC!
Even though it doesn’t count as a daily chore, cleaning the debris from the AC is a draining task and it would be nice if the husbands put it on their list.
5. Fix the fused light on the high ceiling where we cannot reach ourselves
If you see that the light has not already been fixed, your commenting on the fused bulb or blown-out tube light is not going to magically take care of it either. Get that stepladder out, mister.
6. Help us keep the bathroom clean
Leave the bathroom neat after use and clean the toilet at least once a month. The floor wiper is simpler to use than one can imagine.

7. Participate in keeping the home clean
There are so many big and small things that one can do. Starting with clearing the dinner table each night. and in sorting the random mess that any lived-in home gets daily… and also the cobwebs high up in that unreachable corner, the stubborn dust mites under the mattress, the universe of microorganisms living in the carpet and in the insides of a sofa… the gunk in the drain pipe… please, just a little participation, guys!
