Longtime partner committed to companion but not to daily chores
Jun 14, 2016 5:00 AM - Q. My longtime partner is in many ways a wonderful woman. I definitely will be her committed companion for as long as we both shall live. However, she is a total slob. While our living room is kept up fairly well, the bedroom looks as if a tornado has just come through. The bathroom has cosmetic-type junk strewn all around. The kitchen has flies buzzing around the unwashed dishes. She has been like this for as long as I have known her (about 35 years). I myself am conscientious about cleanliness. However, I will absolutely not clean up after her. She would like it if I did, but I know if I do she will never take responsibility for herself. So the situation never gets resolved.
