THE DIFFERENCE IF YOU MARRY AN ILLINOIS GIRL
I'm pretty sure this would be true for a Lincolnshire girl as well...

Three friends married women from different parts of the Midwest...

The first man married a woman from Wisconsin . He told her that she was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.

The second man married a woman from Minnesota . He gave his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done, and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a girl from Illinois. He ordered her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything - but by the third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.

He still has some difficulty when he pees.

I think if it was a girl from the south, he wouldn't be bruised, but by the third day, he might just have been let back in the house provided he promised to do all the washing, cooking and cleaning

My nephew in Dallas. When his girl moved in. He gave her a list of jobs that she *had* to do. Which covered everything that needed doing on a daily basis. Was upset when she didn't do it all daily.

I find it incredible, in this day and age, there are still people in the UK and the USA who think like this. I'm not saying I don't do most the housework, but it is by choice, I want it done right, and if I asked my husband would do more.

I couldn't believe it. Hubby and I when we were both working, we both did the house work.. When I wasn't working I did it all. Now he's retired we again both muck in again.

When I was first married we lived just outside Chicago. My new hubby tried something like this, he soon found out not to push his luck with a girl from the UK. Now here we are, 42 years later and we still share the chores.

lol ;-)

Our family was a very chore-sharing family, though my brother and I did a fair share of "Do I HAVE to????" "Aww, come on."

Garbage, dinner clean up, laundry, cat litter, etc. Both my parents cooked, thus instilling my brother and I to cook.

I love Chicago as well...Never forget my first visit to the city. I just arrived from UK, my father-in-law decided to take me and show me down town. I had never seen a building more than 10 stories high. Plus the National Guard were petrolling the city was Chicago Convention time 1968.
Question: Did you get my email about the quilting?
