I dunno.. after having an argument over household chores (or anything) "intimacy" is not at the top of the list of things to do next. Makeup sex worked for the first 5 or so years.. after that she more or less just stayed angry for the next 10.. didn't matter that I did my share of dishes, vacuuming, cooking, laundry, home renos, car repair, yard work.. (those last 3 she did none of).. etc.
I am now alone. My second wife had health issues, so I did everything inside and out. In my first marriage I did the ironing, simply because I was particular about the amount of starch and getting the pleats perfect in my many many cotton dress shirts. I cooked then too, my wife baked. She was a really good cook, with Amish roots. I never really had a problem pitching in with housework at all. I distinctly remember in my first marriage doing the handyman thing or cooking a special meal would usually result in my being led to the bedroom later on.
My ex got out of lots of "family" chores by studied inefficiency and ineptness. When we met he was a good cook, after we had kids he would cook only one thing, and it was horrible. Washing up was half assed, and frequently things broke. He could be counted on not to break kids and to get them in bed at a reasonable time. After we split the kids confirmed he only did what was absolutely necessary in the realm of housework. He liked to pour a glass of OJ and take it up the stairs and down the hall to his study, and the kiddoes confirmed there were OJ stains in the carpet all along that path. He did repair chores around the house, but it was guaranteed to be at least two trips to the hardware store, and hours of fussing, discussing, and whining. He did do the lawn mowing and snow removal. Fixing cars was done by the dealer or other repair/maintenance place.
