We've been living together for about a year. Things don't always go as well as they should due to my partner postponing chores A LOT. I on the other hand like to be organised as doing things on time leaves us with more time to do other things and the chance to go to bed earlier.
My partner often takes a nap, has a bath, watches TV or whatever and this way postpones doing chores, which sometimes results in the excuse "It's too late to do chores now, I will do them tomorrow." This is seriously getting on my nerves and we sometimes get in a fight.
How can I make my partner realise it's better to do things on time?
I understand that procrastinating is hard to give up. I understand that I may be overreacting or a little pushy. But it is very important to me to have free time and be relaxed rather than be anxious about chores that have to be done, but haven't yet. Sometimes I have no proper clothes to wear because they haven't been ironed when they should have been. We also don't have time to do things together on the weekdays because of this behaviour.
- Stop living together with my partner is not an option (at least for now)
- Chores are equally divided. We work the same hours and arrive at home at the same time
- My partner is also studying for their master degree. But sometimes studying is also postponed with various excuses
