My husband and I have been together for 10 years and we moved in with each other when we were 19. In our first home, we shared the work and cleaned together. A few years later we had our daughter and moved to a new place. Since we have lived here (for four years) I have been the only person who has ever done laundry (which is on the bottom floor of a third floor walk up.. and we live at the top).
He never picks up his clothes off the floor, even after we got him a second laundry basket next to his side of the bed at his request, and he occasionally freaks out when his favourite clothes aren’t clean in the morning. I told him during his last freak out that he doesn’t get to say anything because he doesn’t do his own laundry and if he kept complaining he can do it himself!
Well.. he still isn’t putting his clothes in the basket, and I’m tired of picking them up, and he complained about his clothes again so I decided no more! I’m done washing his clothes, but I absolutely hate mess and I can’t stand the dirty clothes even on his side of the bedroom.
Is there anything else I can do.. or is my strike on laundry the best option?
