If you cook, you don't do dishes. Simple division of labour.
 
In general, if your relationship is an equal partnership, then you'll discuss which chores each person is responsible for, and then do them. I've never understood why this is hard.

I'm not a big fan of keeping score.  While I do most of the cooking, when it comes to other things like laundry, dishes, cleaning bathrooms etc., if the jobs are there to be done they'll be dealt with by one or both of us.
 
OTOH, after 30 years she's never offered to do an oil change.
