Sharing household chores ranks third in importance to a successful marriage, trailing only faithfulness and good sex.
Another survey found that 25 per cent of people who were divorced, named “disagreements about housework” as the top reason for getting a divorce.
But when you think about it, what appears to be small and insignificant disagreements about chores, can become full-blown arguments between you and your spouse.
Raise your hand if you’ve argued about:
The proper way to stack the dishwasher
Picking up the wrong ingredient from the supermarket
Missing an appointment for your child
Late payment on a bill
Procrastinating to fix something in the house
These are just a few of many examples of situations that cause frustration, resentment and sometimes turmoil amongst everyday couples.
We’ve been there. And in many ways, we’re still in it.
But we haven’t settled. We’ve implemented some robust systems to get an insane amount of things accomplished together, whether it’s completing housework, planning a holiday or running a business. We have lots to share around couple productivity, and I’m sure if you’re in this situation, you’ll appreciate how relatable our issues have been.
We talk about what we did when we first moved in with each other, what made our relationship different when living under one roof, what we started to notice in each other that we didn’t like, and what we did to try and fix the situation.
We quickly realised that the problem was in how we communicated with each other and this is when we introduced Wunderlist into our lives.
We share with you some of the benefits of implementing the same system that we have used over the past five years and how to get the most out of it.
