This Mother-Of-Four Had Enough With Men Not Helping Around The House, And Her Rant Has Now Gone Viral

Raising a family is tough, it takes a lot of hard work and commitment from both partners and communication and the spirit of teamwork is vital. So you can quite easily imagine the resentment that quickly sets in when one partner begins to take their foot off the gas! The other has to pick up the burden, and that doesn’t bode well for the relationship. Or, as Australian blogger and mum of 4 Constance Hall puts it in a Facebook post that has gone viral, “All you’re left with is silent resentment. And that my friends is relationship cancer…”

Cue an outpouring of comments from, almost exclusively, women who are frustrated with their men and their lack of consideration. While societal attitudes towards women are changing, with the fight against things like sexual harassment and unequal pay bringing some positive results, it seems that domestically there is still some work to do. Obviously that’s not to say that all men are slacking off, there are also many women who are happy and grateful that their man has been raised with a sense of responsibility!

Scroll down below to see Constance’s post, and let us know what you think in the comments. Do you agree with her? If you have a partner, do you make a good team? We look forward to hearing your opinion!

Blogger and mum of 4 Constance Hall had enough with the daily chores that she’s left alone with every day…

So she took it to Facebook to explain just how frustrating it gets

“These nutcases are my world”

Most commenters were women who could definitely relate to Constance’s rant

Some tried to find an explanation for the problem

While others were happy with their relationships

stop making this about men vs women, this is about individual jerks. I am a man and I cook most of the meals in my house, I do the dishes at least half the week, I do the laundry and any of the other house chores that need to be done. My wife does them too, we don't wait for the other to do them, when we see they need to be done we just do them. I know plenty of guys like me, we don't think we are special, or the exceptions, we are just people being adults and doing what we all need to do to have a happy home. So please for the love of god stop acting like this a gender issue, it is just an issue with some people that are lazy and inconsiderate, some of those people happen to be men, some of them happen to be women, it doesn't make stop indicting an entire gender because of the worst people who happen to have that gender

Nobody said the entire male gender is guilty of this. However, as a woman who has lived with a few men... this person isn't wrong that many men are this way. I can't tell you how irritating it can be to remind a grown adult of their household responsibilities. Constantly going behind someone to pick up their mess, close a cupboard, remind them that yes, the house needs vacuuming. Women are still considered "homemakers" in many households, even when both people work full time, and still take on the brunt of the housework in many households. There are statistics and studies out there for you to check out. Look at all the women commenting on having to deal with the very same thing. Don't discount their experiences because you don't want anyone to say anything bad about men. We all know all men aren't this way.

You can blame your Mother in Law for raising such lazy slobs. My Mother in Law raise my husband to run the sweeper, clean bathrooms and do dishes, she also taught him how to cook. I wish every woman had the husband I have. Ladies raise your sons to do better than your husbands.

You can blame whoever you want, or you can address the problem. None of this helps anything.

All parents should teach all of their kids the knowledge and skills they have learned, be it housework, paying bills and managing a budget, cleaning, car maintenance, yard work, woodworking, sewing, etc. Everyone can use all of these skills.
