Domestic Labor is Still Labor (with Laura Danger)

Have you ever had a coworker who drops the ball with work tasks? They can’t be trusted to complete work to the minimum standard, and you end up picking up all the slack. It’s awfully frustrating, isn’t it? Now imagine that YOU LIVE WITH THAT PERSON.

So many domestic partnerships fall into these unfair, unsustainable traps. One person is the “default”, and is in charge of the majority of the tasks that keep the home and family running smoothly. And the other person doesn’t seem to appreciate all the labor that their partner contributes. The end product is resentment and domestic discord. It sucks.

Don’t believe everything that you see with beautifully curated, Insta-filtered social media posts about relationships. This is the dirty little secret no one wants to talk about.

Laura Danger to the rescue! She’s a domestic equity advocate/educator and certified Fair Play facilitator. She is here to teach Julie and Jeremy how to communicate our needs, divvy up the work, and build our relationships stronger, healthier, and happier.
