It's a strange thing really. In vanilla relationships the husband might say, "The house is getting too cluttered," and the stay at home wife might reply, "I'll try to work on it today." If she doesn't then who knows what happens.
In a HOH, CDD household the husband might say, "The house is getting too cluttered," and the stay at home wife might reply, "I'll work on it today." The difference is that she knows that it's gotten too cluttered, right now because of the Holidays and now she has heard it's time to get back to organization of the household. She also knows that if she doesn't get the house, living room at least, in order by the time the husband comes home he will sit down at the kitchen bench, pull down her pants and panties and spank her because she knows it should have been done.
This relationship works well for so many relationships out there because it's straight forward and honest. There's no bantering or arguing. It's simple, "This needs to get done and it's your job to do it." When it doesn't get done then motivation is needed.
