Is It Compulsory To Wash Your Husband's Clothes?

I know the males would say am being disrespectful but am just asking a sincere question. I have come across threads where people like, among others find it insulting for a man to carry a woman's bag or to help with doing the dishes. So, like I said earlier on,my question is honest. I don't mean to offend anyone or group of people. This question is mostly for the ladies. Please, be honest, IS IT A MUST TO WASH YOUR HUSBAND'S OR YOUR BOYFRIENDS CLOTHES?

Is this even an argument?? If u don't wash it who will wash it whether ur a housewife or career woman everything about ur husband and the housekeeping is ur responsibility, if the kids start coming and the load gets get too much u can get a dry cleaner or washing machine for the hard to wash ones.. And as for a boyfriend its not compulsory but personally I can't see dirty clothes and not wash them sha

it is not a must. personally, i don't like seeing people washing my clothes. i do it myself but if she insists on washing it/them, its no problem.

Marriage is between 2 persons becoming one, its a personal thing, U should be the one to choose how u want to run ur home and not someones opinion,

It depends on what you want, personnally I can do it without any pb but saying this is compulsory I don't really think, this is about what you feel

Er, no. You are his wife. Not his maid. Or his washing machine.

If you want to wash his clothes, you should go ahead and do so. But that's an added bonus that he should be thankful for (and demonstrate said thanks by reciprocating with a similar favor) and not part of the job description of Wife.

^ I never said I won't wash.

I just don't like how many Nairaland dudes are always quick to say stuff like, "you'll remain single at 40", etc when a female is perceived as deviating from the supposed norm. Not everybody even wants to get married and not everyone will. But y'all make it seem like marriage is the ultimate. For some people, it's not.

Like I said in my first post, it's whatever works for the couple. There's no right or wrong as everybody is not the same. So, no need telling someone they won't find a husband, etc. There'll always be a guy who will tolerate such women who hold those views you're castigating.

C'mon! Ok. . .its not compulsory. . . But whats bad in washing ya husbands clothes. . , .Truth is guyz wont even look ya side when they know you are lazy and you'd rather avoid this chores that mothers, grand mothers and great great great grand mothers have done without complaint. . . What sensible reason would u have for not doing a simple chore like washing clothes! . . .What about ya kids clothes? you'd tell ur husband to wash that too?

No, its not compulsory. in my opinion, I think the guy should wash his clothes himself or better still get a washerman to do the washing from him. At least he was washing the clothes somehow before he married.why should things change because he is now married, he definably didn't marry a slave

most females here are saying, they shudn't wash their husbands clothes, if they are career women and there is a washing machine,no probs if they are house wives and the husband doesn't have the money to buy a washing machine or pay 4 a washer man, then there is no choice other than to wash his clothes if the man has a 9-5 job.guys try and b sensitive o jare

Hell no for the boyfreind! It is nothing wrongw/washing ur man's clothe in the washer machine, but that does mean if the wife does not do it, the man should get mad. In this day of age both the man and woman work, so guys should try to help in the house especially their own laundry once in awhile.

@post,

Actually it is compulsory.It simply is part of her duties as a wife.D husband could be such dat is nice n all n would wanna help at times,but it isn't a compulsion for him to.It is like asking if it is compulsory for a man to bring home money for upkeep of d house.It is his duty as a husand n thus is compulsory.

Is it compulsory to be a slave under the pretext of wife?

Is it compulsory for a man to be faithful to his wife?

Is it compulsory for a man to be a bread winner as most women earn more?

Is it compulsory to do it anally all in the name of pleasing a man?

I could go on and on.

In every relationship, understanding matters a lot.

As for me, dry cleaners will do our laundry except for the undies which i can wash.

My schedule tight gan nii.

I go rest now.

Toniaslim,

Seriously do you know why they hit people at the back of their heads? because that's where the stupidity is stored!

I've got to say some women have got a long way to go!

A lot of women take this feminism crap too far! and before some of you go yidi yada. . .I'm also a feminist. . .

But let us address the true meaning of feminism. . .Some of you screaming "I'm a feminist" do you truly understand the true meaning of feminism?

Or do you just spew sturvs from your mouths without having a clear understanding of what your saying. ,

Feminism is not all about screaming Oh I'm equal to the dude and all that crap. . .women like Hillary Clinton are what I call true feminists. . .because they understand what its true meaning is. . .

feminism is not about fighting to be a man's equal or throwing your duties away as a woman. . .But its rather all about embracing your gift as a woman. . . exploring your hidden potentials,going beyond your limits and being the best you can be to yourself, family and the society at large. . .

Back to the issue at hand. . .Yes Its may not be compulsory to you but its something I'll happily do cus that's a sensible thing to do!

Now I'm not making excuses for men. . .but I like to look at it from different point of views. . .sometimes we women are the cause of our own problems with men!

Men and women are also like switches. . .you click the right switch and they treat you right. . .ONly and I quote only the foolish men and men who do not fear God would treat you otherwise. . .

You do a real man right. . .watch and see if he'll ever take you for granted! Wink

You are just one of the very few women that have all it takes to tame a man. Treat him right then you'll see him dance when ever you want him to.

I agree with who called you a virtuous woman. I wish you the best of the best in your marriage. Impressive!

Serves the moofooker right for treating you wrong. Yes what most guys want is pushovers/glorified cooks/maids then they complain about how boring their wife is and eventually cheat on their wives. Its a vicious cycle.

In my village the wife cooks while the husband washes clothes. My wife changes dresses like 4 times a day and i have to wash, starch and iron them with a coal iron. That woman will kill me.

honestly, it depends. If you have washing machine anyone can do that and depending on the time avaliable to both parties. If there is no one avaliable in the house (only the couples) and the wife is always there she should help out with it. It doesn't take away anything from her and it does not reduce her from being the wife. If my washing machine is bad I do the washing occassionally to help her. atimes I wash her own cloths depending on the situation. It is about understanding but what men hate is a woman trying to abuse such privilegde.

@ancel-am not backing out.It's just that some people argue in a senseless manner and expect everybody to go along with them as if it's by force. BTW,this thread is not poo,I created it because I needed honest replies/opinions and not for revenge like *&*%#.

It depends on what Country you live in. In Nigeria - No . I have been married for over 20 years , my wife had and has no compulsion to wash my cloth , she might have washed my hankerchiefs once or twice in those 2 decades plus! As for her amateur ironing , I will not even accept it for my clothes.

i dont see why this topic is causing alot of arguments the truth of the matter is that pple shld work out wot happens in their marriage if in a house the wife decides not to wash the husbands clothes and there is peace in that house doesnt mean that the same thing can occur in the next house.a lot of guys and ladies singing a tune when they are single wld find out that its not like that on the other side so everybody shld know wot works best for them and their famlies beside if there is love the issue of lundry wont come up.its also nice that the men help out in the house afterall its not the wifes or husbands house.

this issue is based on understanding each other,during our university days(i n my hubby)he normally washes n i do assit n threre are times he gives to drycleaners,nw dat we are married,he gives his cloth to the dry cleaners mostly shirts n suits,atimes natives,i only wash some petty ones,so it is based on ur financial capacity n understanding

In this era of tecnology, isn't it about putting clothes into the washing machine? Who cares about who does it as long as it is done?
