And…. I work 60-hour weeks and earn twice what my wife does. Do we really have to split the chores?

What’s the best message to send a woman after a hot one-night stand? Miguel, Pretoria

“Free for dinner Friday?” Simple words can say a lot. You’re casually making it known that you’d like to see her again – and soon. That’s all she probably wants to hear after a passionate fling. She’ll peg you as a confident, stand-up guy who’s into more than just sex.

I’m going to save you a lifetime of arguing: take that fat paycheck of yours, peel off a hundred bucks or so and call a cleaning service. The way you’re using maths to calculate who does what is bound to breed resentment. If you bring in outside help, you’re not only shutting down the chore debate, but also providing employment for someone who probably cleans better than the both of you combined.
