When Clint Edwards married, his mother expected a lot from his new wife. She asked her son if it bothered him that his wife did not keep a clean house.
Edwards who has a Daddy Blog called “No Idea What I’m Doing” said he had no idea how to answer her. He said his mother was not being mean, and it was a question out of curiosity. Edwards said his mother did have a point. Their house usually has a sink full of dirty dishes and evidence that children live in the house.
Edwards said it is not just his wife’s job to clean the house, it was his too. He said “marriage as a partnership.”
Edwards said his mother’s view of housework is because of the era she was raised in. He said he does remember that his dad advised him to stop by a woman’s house when she does not expect it to see what condition it is in. His dad told him a house speaks volumes about a woman.
Edwards told his mother that he did not get married to have a clean house. He said he married so he could spend his entire life with his wife.
His mother agreed with him. She recognized his reflection on marriage and a clean house is a depiction of a change in relationships from then and now.
