More Chores Play Equals More Foreplay

In most marriages today both partners have a very hectic schedule. In most family both the husband and wife have jobs and with raising a family that can put a lot of added stress on the marriage.

By the time you finish work, you are heading home to another full-time job called “TAKING CARE OF THE FAMILY”.

To create peace and harmony, you must remember that marriage is a partnership. This partnership includes the practical business of running the family and the household. This includes keeping financial records, maintenance, shopping, planning, cooking, child care, transportation, etc. 
These are not responsibilities for one person. They are responsibilities shared among both spouses. Marriage is similar to a merger and acquisition of two company. Both companies are now one and what they do affect the other. When their stock value raises both benefits, when their market value decreases it hurt all who are involved in the merger. In marriage, it works the same way. Both couples must play their role effectively in order to have a successful marriage. When all the practical aspects of a home run smoothly, it brings more peace and harmony to the marriage.
