    Being a working dad in the small percentage that thinks husbands and wives should not share the work equally and in the percentage that does not believe others couples are more together than my wife and me. Let me give you all some advise. Do NOT compare yourself to others. Do NOT compare the amount of housework you do to the amount your spouse does. Try to do what you can and be happy about it. Equality under the law is great and necessary. Recognizing that everyone has individual abilities is better. No two people perform at the same level. Its great to learn that your spouse doesn't like to cook and you do. Making the spouse that doesn't like to cook make half the meals will never work out well. So don't divide the work evenly, divide the work according to what each individual likes and dislikes.

    No matter what you choose to do, work outside the home, or stay at home, it is your choice weather your happy or not, that is a choice, I was a stay at home mom, and every morning, I could choose what kind of a day it was going to be, I could moan and cry because I didn't have this or that, or I could count my blessings and be grateful for what I had, and make life fun and happy for my children. Working moms, fill bad because they are always comparing themselves to others, just like stay at home moms. STOP IT>.. be your best self, compare yourself to you, are you better this week than you were last week? if there is something you want to change, then change it. What ever you spend your time on you will get good at, some choose watching TV, being on facebook, spending money, Others will read and study, learn to play the piano . it is your choice..
