Ever wondered why loving and lasting relationships are hard to come by? Some may put the blame on the lack of time spent together due to household chores or childbirth. Worse still, some couples fall out due to accumulated frustrations that have been swept under the rug for a long period of time. Arguably, it boils down to the mutual responsibility that partners have for each other.

Cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping, and the likes are some of the common tasks shared between partners. But what if one does more than the other? There have been occasions where one claims to bring home the bulk of the bacon while the other disagrees saying that they are contributing more to running the household. Where can couples find the equilibrium to satisfy both parties?

One of the simplest ways of sharing responsibility is to collaborate through an activity. Why wait for a fall out to happen before taking action? From rearing a pet (not a child yet...), cooking together to cleaning up after oneself, are activities that enable couples to get to know more about each other. One of the simplest ways is to start doing something simple and taking turns to take responsibility for the same activity. With both parties taking responsibility of an activity, it is a test for couples who wish to put in equal effort to make their relationship everlasting. And this is only the beginning.
