When you ask couples which household issues influence the success of a marriage, things like kids and finances usually rise to the top.
But did you know that chores rank third on that list?!
How can something as simple as housework fuel conflict in a marriage?
Rather easily it turns out. As we all know, life gets busy. Not long after the “I do’s,” couples tend to get focused on (or maybe I should say, “distracted by”) the household tasks they care about, while forgetting the burdens their spouse is carrying. The next thing you know they’re locked in a power struggle over who does more and who works harder.
If that battle is currently waging in your home (or if you’d prefer to avoid it altogether), I’d encourage you to listen to today’s broadcast, “Avoiding the Chore War.”
Joining me in the studio is my wife, Jean, along with Focus’ vice president of Family Ministries, Dr. Greg Smalley, and his wife, Erin. We’ll discuss practical ways for couples to create an atmosphere of honor and respect in the home where housework will benefit the relationship, not tear it down.
