I also think in many cases, they are lazy about the house. My dad once told my mom, why should I do it if I can get you to do it. And I think those two things go hand in hand. It's not a big deal to them if there are drips on the counter but they know if it's important enough to their spouse, she will take care of it.

I also think that there's an evolutionary component to. I think that generally guys have the "protect and provide" gene and women have the "nurture and care for" gene.

I think that gene skipped over me.
