Video Transcript - Dr. Dana's Help to Share Responsibility
Hi, I’m Dr. Dana. Do you feel like all of the responsibility in the marriage falls on you? It’s quite common for one partner to feels as if the other partner is letting them down by not stepping up and doing their fair share. Now this could mean that they’re not taking responsibility for the emotional areas of the relationship, but most often it means that they are not doing their fair share in the practical day-to-day running of the household and family. And it’s a big deal because fighting about money and an unfair division of labor causes 70% of all divorces. In fact, we’ve dedicated a whole video to this subject in the
StrongMarriageNow System, but in the interest of time, let me give you the bottom line.
Determining what I like to call a “Fair Division of Labor” and arriving at “Job Descriptions” can be an easy issue to resolve. It’s just simple math. There are 24 hours in a day and a certain number of things that need to be accomplished to make both members of the couple happy. Follow these three steps from the Job Description Exercise in our System:
A. Each person makes a list of everything they do to support the household and family:
B. Add up the time each partner spends per week doing these tasks:
Total Time: __________________________
C. Get together with your spouse and review each other’s lists. If the Total Time appears unbalanced, agree to give-up or take-on responsibilities until both parties are satisfied with their job descriptions.
