The 12 types of husbands


Spends the majority of his time building things in the shed. Low-key afraid of his wife. Takes ages to poop. Cannot make a bed properly if his life depends on it.


Always steals the blankets. Claims he knows where the laundry room is. Also claims he knows how to change the toilet roll. Yet to prove either of these things.


Insists on using every single pot in the kitchen when he cooks. Is most likely the youngest of his siblings. Finds farting hilarious. Believes it’s highly possible to die from the man flu.


Cried at your wedding. Prefers cats over dogs but will never admit it to others. Always turns the lights off in the entire house before bed.


Stays up late to watch sport. Falls asleep on the couch after three minutes. Doesn’t believe in using a coaster.


Has a nickname for everyone. Doesn’t own a decent pair of pants. Packs for vacations at the very last second. Doesn’t unpack when he gets home. Ever. Can never find his toothbrush.


Incredibly proud of his facial hair. Has more apps on his phone than you do. Yells at the TV a lot. Has a lot of opinions on Facebook’s name change.


Refuses to throw anything out. Obsessed with his lawn. Hates Kmart with a passion. Also hates Kinetic Sand. Sighs a lot.


Has T-shirts from the 90s. Will argue all day long that Pluto is still a planet. Still wants to quit his day job and join a band. Doesn’t play a musical instrument.


Tells the same dad joke over and over again. Argues with the kids over whose turn it is to play with a new toy. Lets you know anytime he unloads the dishwasher.


Has a collection of protein powder in the pantry. Has been ‘thinking about getting a gym membership’ for six years now. Talks a lot about V8 Commodores. Forgets every family member’s birthday.


Would rather be fishing right now. Also looks incredibly good naked.

So there you go ladies. Which husband are you sleeping beside tonight?
