The best part about being married or in a relationship is the life we share with our spouse or partner. Being a "better half," they become an integral part of our everyday life. However, when it comes to sharing responsibilities, in most cases, the weighing scale falls on the woman's side because it's an unsaid expectation for ages. However, some men set an example by being an equal participant in doing household chores. A real estate pro, Drayton Nay—who goes by @draytonnay on TikTok—is one such man who believes that despite being the sole breadwinner, men must support their wives in other chores.

In his recent video, Nay shared five basic things men should do to take care of their women. Firstly, he insisted that whenever the couple goes out, men should be the ones to pay for everything. "Don't ask her for a dollar. Don't ask her for anything," he said. The second thing was that men must engage in cleaning the house or hire someone to get it cleaned rather than making the women do it all. "I'm not talking about just the daily pick stuff up. I'm talking about the deep cleaning," he said and added, "Don't have your wife do it. It's your responsibility."

Nay emphasized that throwing away the garbage was a man's job and said, "You don't want your wife messing around with garbage. She hates it." The fourth thing for men to do was maintain their and their women's cars. Nay revealed how he made it a habit to maintain his and his wife's car every weekend and added, "Make sure the oil is changed. Make sure the car is clean. Make sure the car is spotless. It's your job." Finally, he advised all men to fill up their spouse's or partner's gas tank every weekend. "Under no circumstances are you going to have your girl stopping at a gas station to pump gas," he said.

At the end of the video, Nay said that following these five things would help men "have a lot easier life with their women." The video went viral with over 7 million views and nearly 40K comments swarmed in. It caused a huge debate among the users. Many women agreed with Nay and lauded him for voicing this out. Several men and even women wondered that if men had to do all these chores, despite being the family's breadwinner.

When @kennyberwager asked, "What if she doesn't like to cook either? So I'll clean, cook, do garbage, do car maintenance, do dishes, do laundry work, work and work. I'm a Superman now," Nay replied, "Trust me, it will help you too." The user then agreed, "Yes, it leads to a sense of gratitude, which is healthy. I genuinely feel good helping my family & the discipline will help my kids learn by example." Another user, @laravasa, pointed out, "I understand if both are working, then yes, housework to do together, but if the wife is at home all day long, she needs to clean, cook, laundry, etc."

"My husband has been doing those 5 things for 30 years. I guess that's why we are still happy!" @loriwiarda shared. "There is one man I know who does this and it's my father. I don't think they make that kind of man anymore," wrote @danafrgsn. "If I had a man like that, I would do anything for him," @user4732936997236 said.
