Married couples who are not staying with their parents/in-laws often face the dilemma of sharing household chores between them. My spouse and I have found out that if we depend on the socially determined gender roles for sharing the household chores, then it not only puts additional stress but it also bitters the relationship. As a family promoting equality we share the chores more dynamically…both of us do everything, upon mutual understanding. For example on the day I cook, she does the dishes and vice versa. Having a 3 year old child also helps in the matter as we get equal amount of time to spend with the little one.
