So, my other half has just cracked the shits because I got the wrong kind of paint for the skirting boards -- not that he knew any differently, he just blithely assumed that I knew what I was doing, which I never claimed. My issue is this: what is reasonable to expect a man to actually have a clue about, or at least make an attempt to learn? For example, I do all the garden work, mow the lawns etc, change the oil and water in the car (he doesn't even know where they go or how to check levels), fix any plumbing issues or other small maintenance items, plus do the grocery shopping, laundry, cooking and cleaning.

He goes to work and sometimes to the pub, where I have to pick him up from.

Am I unreasonable in thinking that maybe, just maybe, I'm being taken advantage of?

He's not Australian, he's Scottish, so your stereotypes don't work :p

Not that nationality is any excuse.

i imagine you will put up with it until you are truly fed up. just try not to go psychotic towards the end.

passive aggressive behavior is a great way to relieve tension.

People play different roles in relationships. I have always taken care of the outside work and (when I'm not single) my significant other takes care of the housework. I the event that we both work (rare) I also help with the housework. I have had girlfriends in the past that didn't cook so I took over that as well.

Now to your situation: your role is mother and his is son jmo. Some men don't want to stand on their own feet so they look for a woman that will treat them like their mother did (or like they wish she had.)

Sounds like he needs a big dose of grow-the-fuck-up.
Wildcard is awesome.
