I am going to take this opportunity to vent a little. If you do not care about people complaining, you can stop reading now. This post is for me to vent, and may be a little boring.
My wife and I have shared the cooking and cleaning duties around the house, or at least we did until she lost her job last summer. When she lost the job, I told her that she would have to take care of the housework and not just lie about the house, and she replied that she did not want to take advantage of me, and that she thought she was getting the better end of the deal. That lasted about a month.
So far this week, I worked a 24 hour shift on Sunday, and got off work at 0730, and drove directly to my second job. I had time to eat breakfast in the employee cafeteria before that job started at 0900. I worked, wandering around a local theme park delivering Band-aids and Tylenol to tourists until 1800, whereupon I returned home, after stopping at the Taco Bell drive through for dinner. I got to watch a Hockey game on television until 2300, and went to bed for my 0530 wakeup call.
I stopped at a McDonalds drive through for breakfast and was at work again at 0700. I worked until 1530, and had to come home to do my homework for college, so I stopped at Subway on the way home and got the wife and I a sub for dinner, and I was in bed by 2100, exhausted. I took vacation today so I could go to the Hockey Game tonight, and I get up to get breakfast and see that the dishes from last night were left for me to take care of.
You can see where this is going. I am not eating at home, I am working two jobs, full time college student (I have taken 55 credit hours in the past 12 months) and I still have to come home and help with the dishes, even though the wife has no job, and does very little. It is frustrating.
Anyway, thanks for reading this, if you have gotten this far.

As a wife, in the same position as yours,I suggest cutting off funds. Believe me, that will get her attention. Be firm with her. You have a right to a clean house. Peace to you and good luck.
