Often we heard about couples quarreling about their personal life, but do you know it might include the topic of doing laundry? Since they live in under the same roof and in the same room, it is natural that they will have arguments in this kind of matter.
Sometimes, too much workload on one person is bad. The same goes for house chores of couples. Most of the time, man generally think that it is the woman job to wash the dishes and clothes. All the house chores belong to the wife, and husband job is just to work and rest. This is the point where arguments are caused due to overload of chores. In such cases, both the partners are trying to point their fingers at each other and in doing so they are indirectly fighting.
“My shirts are not going to dry on its own, I need it by tomorrow!”
Arguing over a same thing repeatedly is, of course, pointless. But this is where one fifth of couples get stuck. Once you’re deeply engaged in the battle of whose turn it was to take out and hang the wet clothes from washer, it is hard to cool it down. No matter who “wins”, everyone loses in the end, and no laundry would get proper drying.
Dispute over cleaning issues in a household can be the final straw. House cleaning has been rated second most common reason for quarrels after financial issues. We all know how bad it would be to quarrel over money, how about the second worst?
Speaking of dreadful habits that a partner might have, bad cleaning habits is just a step away from the worst, which is bad hygiene. Pretty sure nobody would like to have their partner smells bad, or even not brushing up their teeth. Cleaning habits works the same, no person can stand of someone who is not even bother doing washing and cleaning.
As people aged, generally, their sense of responsibility also improves over time. Most of the older people tend to have a good cleaning habits compare to the younger people, which still having problem synchronizing their cleaning routine.
The child is considered to be a proof of love in a married couple’s life, but sometimes it is this little kid that become the reason for most of their disagreements. Truth is, children will only end up wearing a few outfits on a daily basis. They don’t like change, but they have high tendency to mess up their own clothes. In average, they would at least need to change their clothes three times a day, not including the one they use for playing outside.
Additionally, they function in a certain pattern. For them, clothing doesn’t belong to drawer or laundry basket, so it ends up on the floor. A garment on the floor is by definition dirty! So it is not weird if couples would struggle in this case.
Often, even the smallest matter create trouble between partners. In the case of married couples, laundry can be an important issue since both of them living in the same house and the same room. While woman for instance would want everything to be clean, neatly arranged and everything is in proper place, man might be different.
Most of the time, man would be much more carefree about this cleaning issues, and would leave their clothes scattered around the room. This could be the point where the argument starts, and the rest would be like usual daily quarrel.
It is unarguably true that women have a better tendency to excel in laundry better than men could. While there is up and down in between both gender, toleration between both parties is a must in order to resolve the problem at hand effectively. Laundry is not an easy chores, but with cooperation from both side, the task will go smoothly without needs to quarrel.
