Husband wants 50/50 splitting of bills

The displeased man then demanded that she get a job and split the bills 50/50 with him since they would share chores.

This did not sit well with the woman and has created an issue between the couple. Racheal shared a copy of the roster the woman sent her. Racheal posted:

"From my box. Nawa.
"The roster I made that is causing chaos.
"Who made doing chores a woman’s duty? When we foot bills as well. My husband provides and helps out at home. These days he will come and go to sleep. I now put this in our kitchen so we can share chores.
"He woke up shouting at me that he don’t blame me. He also told me to get a job and start footing 50 percent with him. That since the chores is shared. Let bills be spilt into 2. The issue is not an easy one and we have been keeping malice. Mothers and fathers, was I wrong to demand that we share chores since I have two kids."

Mwangi says he has gladly taken on the responsibility of managing household chores to ease the burden on his wife, Elizabeth Nyanjiru Ng'ang'a.

One notable thing was that Elizabeth was from a better background than Mwangi, so she kept pushing him while he supported her throughout her career. Mwangi completed school one year ahead of her but lacked the finances to move to the next level, so he had to take time off to think about the next step.
