That Honey-Do List Is Calling Your Name 

I had an interesting experience last week when I was talking to an on-line friend who is from Australia, but lives in Japan. I was chatting about my husband’s honey-do list—actually we were talking about my blog entry about gift certificates of time from last June. This Australian had no idea what I was talking about and had never heard the term “honey-do.” 

from Clipart.com

I don’t think there’s a single North American married man (or at least a married man living in the United States) that doesn’t know what a honey-do list is.

My own husband jokes that his honey-do list gives him job security in our marriage. However, we sometimes do things on the honey-do list together.

Here’s something to consider:

  • Would marriage be more fun with no honey-do lists at all?
  • Would marriage be more fun with honey-do lists that can be done together?

In our world I don’t see third or fourth options—well, couples might hire every single thing done, but rarely is that very practical.

Are there others who have different ideas about the proverbial honey-do lists?

To keep marriages fun, yet still take care of all those constant tasks of life, how do you handle this subject?
