Use this check-in to make your relationship more equal

🧽 Talk to your partner every day about who’s doing what tasks.

The division of household chores can be a sore spot for even the happiest couples. One simple solution comes via Don and Carrie Cole, therapists and master trainers with the Gottman Institute, a relationship-focused research organization: Have daily check-ins to ensure that each of you feels okay about who’s doing what household tasks.

As Brigid Schulte writes in Forge, couples should approach these check-ins as “a regular ritual of connection to make sure you’re both on the same page.” All it takes is a few minutes of each day to touch base about what’s working for you, and what isn’t. Your dirty dishes will thank you, too.
