I'd still consider it"lucky" because we all know that not all men are programmed to do household chores.
What is your opinion about this? Does your husband help around at home?

I always hear that I’m lucky that my husband cooks dinner every night. Is he lucky that I do the dishes every night? He gets home from work at 3pm and I get home from work at 7pm. What makes the most sense? Of course he should cook dinner. I don’t understand why it’s an accomplishment for a man to be an adult and share the responsibilities of a household.
I wanna be a boy!
The bar is so low!
You exist? You win! lol

The bar is set so low, yet many of them still manage to trip over it.
My mother-in-law told me I was"lucky" that my partner (her son) was so"helpful" in housework and raising our kids. I told her I wouldn't have married someone who wasn't going to pull their weight. Luck has nothing to do with it.

Right on! We talked about it before moving in, but I was shocked during the first year of marriage/ living together to find out how much nagging my husband required. Had we lived together before getting married, I probably wouldn't have walked down the aisle. Luckily, he learned quickly and sometime during our second full year together, I noticed that I don't have to nag anymore, I usually just ask once and he's right there helping me. smiling face with smiling eyes
We really need to change the idea of women being lucky because men are being responsible adults. Women shouldn't have to pamper grown men. But let's not forget that men are not programmed to do it in our society. Women are expected to do it so we still have to be thankful if our husbands are changing their ways.

Please stop saying you’re husband is “helping you”. He is doing the shared work of family and home. “Helping you” implies it is YOUR job. It is not!
We have three boys, ages 21, 16 and 12. All of them have known how to do laundry, clean the house, empty the dishwasher, mow, shovel snow, rake leaves, etc. for years. The oldest is now out of the house; the younger two have each begun making dinner one night a week so they can have an arsenal of meals they’re comfortable making. I’m raising future adults, and they need to know how to take care of themselves before they worry about taking care of a family of their own.

Thank you for doing that!
There’s not even a bar anymore it’s just a loose piece of string on the ground.
