Can't disagree with you there. I had a friend that was living with her boyfriend and while yes it might have been good for him to get a job since she was working and paying the rent he did help her. He fixed things, cleaned, made the meals, went shopping. I think that should count for something. It doesn't technically contribute into the monthly income but it's stuff that I wouldn't want to have to do when I get home or can't do like fix things around the house since I have no patience or skill in craftsmanship of any kind. This irks me as well so I'm glad you brought it up.
