Life is just easier when we work together. Packing for a trip? Everybody pack their own stuff and then help the other person make sure they didn’t forget anything. Cleaning the house? Divy up the list? Mom’s got a project she wants to do have Dad take the kids out of the house or at least out of the way. Heck neither Mac or I like driving so we take turns on long trips (ahem Chicago anyone?)
When everyone is pulling their own weight (or as much as they are physicaly or mentaly capable of) it makes a marrige stronger. You feel more like a team and less like a parent taking care of their child. This can cause all sorts of problems.
Here are some more Thoughts this Thursday.
