How Can Sharing Household Chores Benefit My Relationship?
Coming into a step family or blended family can be a challenge for every member of the new family. The main thing to remember is that you are not there to replace the old family and its members. You are simply coming together to form a new family that may have separate values or traditions than the previous families.
Having children opens a whole new area of your relationship. Make sure to work as a team to raise the child and doing house work. If one partner is bearing most of the responisbilites, it can make for a very stressful atmosphere which can be negative for the baby as well as the couple’s relationship.
Marriage requires you to be 100% selfish and 100% selfless. You have to make sure all of your own needs are attended to, but you also have to ensure that all of your partner’s needs are met as well.
