Soon after marrying my husband, it became abundantly clear that there are two types of people in this world: those who hire help, and those who don't. My husband's family fell into the latter category. They orchestrated moves from house to house themselves, did all their own cleaning and gardening, fixed appliances, sewed clothing, and even handled their own plumbing. In my family, we hired people to do everything.
When we were first married, this disparity caused huge fights for us, but after living together since 2001, we have wised up a bit. As both of our careers have become busier and we have had one, two, then three children, it's become clear that some household needs simply have to be outsourced.
