Married 10 years, 2 kids, my husband refuses to cook

Maybe they'll learn that you can compromise and work together to find a mutually acceptable solution to a problem both parties are happy with if you talk it out with each other instead of trying to "make" someone do something.

There are chores I don't like, there are chores why wife doesn't like. We made a list of everything that needed to be done, and came up with a list we were both happy with because we both had an opportunity to have input. Some things we switch off on, some things are her job, some things are my job.

It's a give and take we're both happy with because we talked to each other about it instead of running off to Reddit and trying to find out how to manipulate our partner into doing something.
