Episode 56: Responsibilities

6In today’s episode, I talk about communication and marriage. Over the long weekend, I had a chance to connect with my husband and we talked about what I could talk about on the podcast.  Richard and I don’t necessarily fight but we do bicker with each other like old people, only because of how long we’ve known each other. This week, I share ways that you can communicate with your partner and what communication looks like in a marriage. 
  • Rachel shares how she and her husband got into an argument over the weekend and what transpired afterward (1:48)
  • How to approach the role of housework with your spouse – tips from author and marriage expert Willard F. Harley, Jr’s book. One way is to identify all the household responsibilities  (5:14)
  • Many women have this argument that they don’t get the help that they need in the household, but this can be avoided through proper communication about each other’s roles. Rachel shares how this looks like between her and her husband (9:30)
  • Communicating with your spouse about what you need help with is important to consider. Another way to address housework and avoid conflict according to Willard F. Harley Jr is to communicate which tasks you don’t mind doing yourself  (11:12)
  • When it comes to housework marriage takes you a step further because you do things for each other because you care about each other’s feelings and not because you want them done yourself (13:27)
