I'm at university at the moment, but I'll fill as is applicable to my parents' house.

1. Who does the cooking and cleaning in your house?
Nobody does the cooking in my house; partly because they don't know how, and partly because they can't be bothered. My mum does the cleaning. Once, when I was little, I introduced her to somebody by saying "she's our mum and our cleaning lady!"

2. Who does the DIY/Repairing in your house?
Generally my dad, but he often makes me or my brother help out with any manual labour.

3. Who takes the most care of the children overall in your house?
Me and my brother are both students in our twenties so, in this case, "children" would have to apply to the household cats :P. We're all on the ball when it comes to checking their food and water, but my mum does most of the dirty work, such as toilet changing.

4. Who works in your household?
Both parents.

5. Who does the shopping every week?
Usually my dad, though he always manages to avoid buying anything I'd actually enjoy eating.

6. Who pays the bills?
Both parents.

7. Do you think chores are shared between men and women in your household equally?
It depends. They're shared equally between my parents, but if you count the entire family (which has a 3:1 M:F ratio) the women do much more work on average than the men. ;)

8. Are you male or female?
Male.

9. How old are you?
20.

1. Who does the cooking and cleaning in your house?
Cooking is always done by mum, and she does most of the cleaning, but each cleans his/her own room and I do the vacuum and clean the car.

If it's a simple task then either dad or me, but if it's a big one we get some one professional to do it.

We don't have children anymore and am the youngest here and I pretty much care for myself. But when we were kids, it was mum.

4. Who works in your household?
Mostly my mum (pretty much 75%), my sister and me. Dad doesn't do much.

Either my mum or dad, depends on who has time. I would do it but my parents wouldn't entrust me lol! Last time I went to the market, I went nuts with chips and drinks I payed alot. :D

Either my dad, mum or me....yes, I pay the bills sometimes.

1. Who does the cooking and cleaning in your house?
Mainly my mother but my father and I help out sometimes (though, I have to admit, I generally stick to only cleaning my bedroom and my dishes). My brother and sisters are usually too busy messing up everything to do anything. Especially my brother, who seems to think he's entitled to 24/7 room service or something.
2. Who does the DIY/Repairing in your house?
Usually...nobody!
3. Who takes the most care of the children overall in your house?
At this point we pretty much take care of ourselves. Before that...dunno. Maybe my grandfather, who looked after us when my parents were at work.
4. Who works in your household?
Both parents. My mother works the most, actually.
5. Who does the shopping every week?
Both parents. Or whoever has time.
6. Who pays the bills?
Ditto.
7. Do you think chores are shared between men and women in your household equaly?
Definitely not, and it really annoys me.
8. Are you male or female?
Female.

1. Who does the cooking and cleaning in your house?
everyone
2. Who does the DIY/Repairing in your house?
mostly my step dad since he's the one with the most know how about it, but we all tend to help
3. Who takes the most care of the children overall in your house?
Well... I guess that would come down to who makes the most money - Mom. But really, its all the same. There really is not any more taking care of the children anymore since we are all grown up.
4. Who works in your household?
Mom, Step Dad, Sister (but she doesn't really live here anymore), (im looking everyday, but I used to work and live on my own)
5. Who does the shopping every week?
Both parents, me for things I need, my sister for things she needs
6. Who pays the bills?
Generally my step dad will be the one that does this. He has his system that he uses and I guess it is better that just one person does it rather than to have two people trying to use two different systems - things will get confusing for sure.
7. Do you think chores are shared between men and women in your household equaly?
chores used to be doled out to us kids when we were younger (and still are to an extent) they were pretty much even across the board except that I would be the only one to mow the lawn (I'm a guy and have only 2 sisters). Other than that, its pretty even - they have a maid service to come in and do the whole house every two weeks. So in the mean time it is more of a "clean as you go" type thing where if you make a mess, you clean it up.
8. Are you male or female?
male

Most of the cooking is done by my father.
(And sometimes by me, as I like cooking too)

And repairing? Most of the time my father does that.

Both take care after us, and I try to help looking after my younger sisters:)

Both of my parents work

The shopping is done randomly by either my mom, my dad, or me.

Paying bills is done together.

Yes I think chores are shared equally between men and women in our household.

2. Who does the DIY/Repairing in your house?
(if you explain what the DIY is, I will reply. Just drop me a PM in case I forget to check back.)

DIY is do - it - yourself. Really the way that I looked at it is who fixes things when they get broken. But I guess you could relate that to "who sews buttons back onto shirts when they fall off" - I can do that myself, and so can my Mom and my Step Dad. My sister might know how to do it, but she grew up a bit spoiled and would most likely ask my Mom to do something like that. When it comes to computer issues... its me that does the fixing since I know most about that. If its structural repair that needs doing... my step dad does that since he's got the most experience there (he grew up building things). Really... it comes down to who has the know how rather than what gender the person is - as well as what their mentality is. are they the DIY kinda person, or are they the kind that would prefer not to bother with doing it themselves and give the task to someone else.

as a side note, we built two porches on the current house (front and back), a picket fence, a shed and a dog house to match the style and color of the house, and we did some work at my older sister's house with her back porch, fence, and ceiling fan. we all helped on it in some aspect or other. Mom even got a war wound from the front porch here in the form of a nail through her foot. :yik: My brother in law didn't do much but try to help out and get a bad sun burn, but my sister did a lot of work.
