Do Men Expect Women To Do Everything? I Illustrated My Conversation With My Wife About Cleaning And Chores
I’m Robert and I’m an ordinary salary otter from Singapore! I started writing comics because I wanted to create content that is relatable, explores social or psychological issues, and is inspired by real-life events.
This particular guide was inspired by a conversation with my wife about cleaning around the house after we had an argument regarding this topic. After we talked, I discovered that there were a lot of hidden expectations!
All in all, I think it led me to learn a few things about expectations and the mental load overall. I suddenly realized I had been putting a lot of pressure on her at home without even realizing it. After trying my best to understand the mental burden that women face in society, we grew closer in a totally new way. Sometimes, it’s worth remembering that men may not realize the mental burden that women face every day. So here’s to understanding it better with a helpful guide (comic)!
What I hope to achieve with this comic is to have males understand and consider the pressure their partners might be facing and hopefully to also learn to shoulder some of that burden as well. After all, it creates a stronger bond in a relationship!
Given all of that, I’d also like to add, that I’ve gotten an overwhelming response from readers, so I translated the comic to Spanish and Mandarin for ease of sharing, and it can be found on my social media platforms down below!
