So I received a text message from a young lady who is married with young children. She wanted to know why men don’t do housework? Her exact question was, “Are all men against cleaning?” After I finished laughing out loud, I settled down and really thought about her question. My quick answer to her was that men are not against cleaning or doing housework, it is just not a priority for them. As I put more thought into it though, I realized that most men will do some house cleaning if needed or asked to, but they usually are focused on the issues at hand, is there enough money and resources to cover what the family needs. That hunter/gatherer mentality keeps them more focused on what’s needed and not focused on what’s already there needing to be maintained.
