lol yeah we're in the same boat. Two of us and we don't do them all everyday. Such a pain to do (literally) for me since I can barely use one arm, and my fiance does other chores so she rarely does them. I hate it when they pile up, makes the kitchen look so gross, but I wash dishes for like 5 min 3x a day and eventually I catch up.

I'm the same way.  If I need the counter space to cook, I better get the dishes out of the way.

My wife and I do the dishes every day.  We don't have a dishwasher, so they all have to be done by hand and hate when they pile up in the sink.  Plus, it's much easier to do a day's worth of dishes compared to doing a sink and counter top's worth.

As needed, just like laundry.  That averages out to every other day, sometimes longer (for dishes).

I don't do dishes until the dishwasher is full. Sometimes while cooking I'll wash as I go, but hate dishes in the sink for the next day. I have enough dishes to last me a good long while before starting the dishwasher. Only one person. I also make do a lot with paper plates for just snacks and stuff.

If it is just me, I do the dishes once a day.  I have this thing about dishes being in the sink.  If the kids are home, they can fill up the sink with dirty dishes at every meal. I do them 3 times a day then.  Sometimes my daughter will do them but not very often.

I do the dishes twice a day everyday!!! It is only my husband, my son and I, but still, somehow we get a lot of dishes dirty!! Our apartment doesn't have a dishwasher and to top that, we have a one sink, not a two sided sink. So, I have like 6 inches of space to rinse the dishes, I HATE IT!! We plan to move soon, and I told my husband I would rather have a dishwasher than a new car!! HAHA!!  :P
