There is nothing more frustrating than coming home tired after a long day at work and seeing the house in a mess with all the chores to do. We all spend time in our day to do housework, but all of this can get even more complicated when you get home and your partner doesn’t worry about them.

Housework should be equitable in couples

Housework is normal, but it can become a big problem if you don’t get along. After fidelity and sex, sharing household chores is one of the most important components for a couple to function. If they do not get along, they can be the cause of great arguments and in more severe situations, even divorce.

There are couples who do not spend enough time having a conversation about housework, and it is absolutely necessary to do. Think that 80% of an adult’s life is focused on housework.

Housework occupies us for two whole months of the year, just in time dedicated to housework! This does not count with other responsibilities such as taking care of the children, maintaining the garden or maintaining the home vehicles. If couples cannot agree on assignments, that means they will spend at least two months of their year arguing with the couple over lack of equitable contributions at home. Without a plan, tasks can be very complicated. If there are imbalances in the couple because of this, the relationship will suffer, leaving quite important emotional traces.

Happy couples run a home like a business

Instead of waiting for the dishes to pile up, and allowing resentment to build up along with them, couples should have an agreement on housework. The “business” is to hit a home run efficiently so that both of you can live happily at home. Spreading household chores equally to the time available and at home . Ideally, to avoid problems, is to create a chart of housework at home, and follow it. Like a work plan.

Usually when couples don’t talk about chores , one person ends up doing most of the work and this creates a lot of resentment because it is exhausting. When one part of the couple feels underappreciated, they may lose motivation to continue the ‘business’ of running the home. This feeling will eventually erode the partnership and harm the relationship.

For this reason, there needs to be a fair distribution of household responsibilities, so the ‘business’ will run smoothly. The couple must learn to satisfy the needs of the home, without overloading in order to be happy.

Doing the housework and organizing it as a team will help you feel closer than ever. Playing on the same team will help you feel that you have a common front. You are a unit in the home and for you to be happy at home, everything will have to be organized from the affection and mutual respect.

The process of figuring out who should do each task will vary depending on the needs of the couple. You will both need to decide responsibilities at home, and it doesn’t matter if you are the boss at work or not. You leave your rank at the door and become a business couple with a vested interest in your home as soon as you get home.

In this way the harshness in terms of household chores will be put aside and you will be a great team. Everything will work better and you will feel more united than ever.
