Before you get married to someone, there are some things you should probably figure out.
I’m talking about finances, whether you want to have kids, where you want to live, and their cleaning style. Yes, their cleaning style.
Married folks get pretty worked up about how their significant others like to clean the house (or NOT clean the house) and it can get pretty contentious. And maybe you’d even call it UGLY.
And just so you know I’m not lying, here are some funny and accurate tweets from married people about how serious this business can get.
Let’s take a look.
1. Let’s have a party!
You really did it!
My husband unloaded the dishwasher so I guess now it’s time to have a parade for him

2. Isn’t that interesting…?
Funny how that works.
My wife needs 6 bags for a weekend trip but can fit 6 weeks of garbage and a couch into a single bag to avoid emptying the kitchen trash.

3. She’s very proud of him.
No matter what he might be cleaning…
husband: *mopping up pools of blood from the kitchen floor*
me: *walks in* OH MY GOD
husband: babe, I can explain-
me: you’re cleaning ?

4. You can feel it in the air.
Are you done yet?!?!
The stress from my wife watching me wash the dishes while she waits to dry them is unbearable.

5. Time to get rid of all your stuff.
It was good while it lasted.

Me: Half of this stuff is junk we don't need.
Wife: The other half is mine.

6. Now it’s your job.
No complaints allowed.
"You don't load the dishwasher right," I said to my wife just before it permanently became my job.

7. He’s not very good at it.
Not good at all…
I appreciate my husband cleaning before we have guests coming over but he always cleans the weirdest shit. Our kitchen will look like a tornado blew through but instead of putting shit away this dude will be up in the attic scrubbing the walls like “iT hAs To Be CLeAn eMiLy”

8. They totally got ruined.
Sorry. It happened again.
Anytime I'm folding laundry and my wife didn't turn her clothes right side out I throw them in the trash and tell her the dryer ate them.

9. I’m scared…
You can’t let her know.
I opened the dishwasher and it's full of clean dishes and I'm scared my wife is going to know that I know.

10. It’s a real thing.
That’ll show him.
Rage vacuuming is like regular vacuuming except you’re married.

11. That’s life.
Over and over and over again.
Marriage is basically cleaning the kitchen and then walking away for 2 seconds and then coming back and seeing the kitchen is destroyed again and getting super annoyed over and over again until you die.

12. You did this!
He should’ve known better.
My husband: So the paper towels are up on the top shelf.
Me, at 5’2”: So I’m cleaning up spills with your socks. Got it.

13. That one time. Remember?
It was a glorious day.

How about you?
Do you and your spouse go round and round about cleaning up the house? How does it actually end up when all is said and done?
