Ensuring reasonable distribution of household tasks can strengthen your relationship, but becoming aware of what roles both you and your partner have distributed is key. It is normal to evaluate the fit of those roles periodically. By reevaluating, you may find you two enjoy status quo, or you might uncover some previously unknown resentment.
Do remember, you and your partner are working together to run the household and contributing your efforts to the same house. The sun truely is greater than it parts when you work as a team.
Consider expectations with your partner:
- As a couple, what are your expectations for household tasks?
- As an individual, do you hold your partner to a certain standard when it comes to completing household tasks?
- What happens when expectations and standards are not met?
If you and your partner ever feel overwhelmed by your results or the ensuing discussion, we encourage you to seek out professional support. Call us.
