Wow, I am a late bloomer in this thread. Can't believe I missed it.
In response to the original post... Yes, in my case, a foreign born wife worked out better for me. Not that I planned it that way or anything. It just kind of happened. Though I have to admit, I always had a thing for Latinas
In response to the rest of the debate... Does my wife do the majority of the house work? Well... yes.
I try to help out where I can, but there is only so much one can do after a 65 hr work week. Dishes sometimes, and the socks generally make it in the hamper. If they don't, it is because I missed, not due to me leaving them in the hallway.
My household chores also include jobs that require power-tools. This is a good thing to have me do because my wife is not the most mechanically inclined individual I have ever met. The way we see it, each of us have our own respective spheres of influence. Her with the Dewalt hammer drill would not be good for a number of reasons. It is also a generally prudent move to keep me away from the finances.
Simply put, we just try to help each other out where we can. That does not mean that I have a servant. Nor does that imply that I am just a sugar daddy. However, it is nice to not hear complaining about the laundry when I come home.
