Who should cook in the house, the man or the woman? If the man works but the woman doesn't she gets to cook or nah this isn't the 70's. If it's the other way around does the man has to cook or nah I want this to still be the 70's.

If both are in a similar position (work/free time) who is responsible for the general chores of the house, the man or the woman?

How does all of this works man.

Whoever is the best cook. There's plenty of other things that need doing you can share responsibility over.

do it together or take it in turns?

Suppose that both are the best cooks, and both don't want to cook. What other things determine who gets to cook.

I am using cooking as an example because it HAS to be done or they both die of starvation, but could be any other important chore.

My wife takes care of most of the cleaning. I help out. She prefers that I don't because I'm real bad at, by her standards.

We take equal parts in the cooking, cuz we both really like it.
My God, it's full of stars!

That's why G_D invented takeout...

More seriously, this is an issue that ONLY the people involved can decide, and if they can't come to an accommodation on this, they probably won't be together long anyway.

I always did the washing up etc in my flat with my girlfriend (before we broke up) cause I have such particular standards and most of the time if she'd done them I'd just end up doing them again cause she never did them well enough

My theory on it is that there should be a proportionate balance, with concessions made each way so that if there's a certain chore that one person hates doing then the other does it but that person then doesn't have to do something they dislike etc.

The other thing is that if you let someone else help/tell them to help and then they do it in a different manner then you shouldn't moan about it. If you're that bothered by their method to the point that you're going to abuse the other person over it then you should just be doing it yourself and give them a different job.

To be honest, if the people can't find a balance and can't agree on something as simple as keeping their home in a manner in which they can actually live then they shouldn't be together.

Can't imagine why you broke up...

Whoever is the best cook. Or whoever likes cooking.

Or if nobody likes cooking, take turns/whoever has time.

It's because she didn't match up to the high standards that your butler set, isn't it?

This. In my house this is me, so I cook 90% of the time. So what? Makes little difference to me

My standards are similar to that of an actual dishwasher, hers are equivalent to someone rinsing a plate in a river and then rubbing any marks off with their fingers.

In terms of cooking, it should be whoever is best/whoever enjoys it most. It really depends on individual cases though.

Seriously, I wouldn't eat anything off a plate that she'd 'cleaned'

I always thought it was ****ing stupid that one or the other should do anything. My girlfriend and I both cook and both clean because it's easier for everyone. I'm going to end up cleaning a lot more during the summer because I couldn't find a job. She has one and so does my roommate. I'm going to be in the house while they're gone so I'll probably end up cleaning more than them to even things out. like why would I make my girlfriend clean just because she's a girl.

Well this is a matter of persistence. After being poisoned several times in what I consider the great chicken incidents of 2012, my friend can now make adequate chicken to the point where I no longer get poisoned.

Alternatively I have a built an immunity to chicken poison.

I would prefer it to be me if I were involved because I like cooking for people. However, it really should be whoever has more time for it and doesn't hate it and can cook something edible.
