Nobody tells you ahead of time, but marriage is work. And one of the hardest tasks? Splitting up all that work!

That's what today's litigants in Couples Court are debating ...

Dear Rik and Michele:

We have been married for four months and desperately need to come up with a division of chores that is fair.

So far I, the wife, do everything unless I ask for help with a particular chore. My husband will help me when I ask, but he acts like he's doing me a favor and it's a one-time only deal.

Am I going to have to ask him to take out the trash twice a week for the next 50 years?

 

Who wants to get in the middle of this one? See you in court!
