The key to happiness is low expectations". That is a bit of tongue-in-cheek. I'm an independent man who can 'bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you're a woman'. In other words I'm old school. I like to cook, and don't mind cleaning. However, things should be 50+ 50. I refuse to pay for someone to do something that I can do myself, and when you're a homeowner there is always something that needs attention. No couch potatoes for me.
