Do you do the laundry at home, do you clean the dishwasher, do the beds and your partner does little? Then it is time for a change! This is because couples who do the housework seem less likely to have a conflict and would be happier in the relationship.

Change

Researchers say it's important to start right away. The first two years of a relationship are crucial for the fair distribution of tasks. Fixed patterns are difficult to break. An unfair division of labor can eventually lead to conflict and a less happy relationship. And you don't want that. Have you lived together for a while and are the tasks unfairly distributed? Then make a new distribution, so that you break old (annoying) habits.

This is often not always seen as a household task, but it is of course in your common interest. It is therefore fair to include these tasks for the most equitable distribution.
