Do you feel like you’re carrying an unfair load in your relationship? The truth is, no relationship will be perfectly split with household responsibilities, carpooling the kids, taking care of the bills and any other number of responsibilities. However, it is important that both partners feel the relationship is fair. Listen to today’s episode to learn what fairness looks like in a healthy relationship and how to make your relationship more balanced if it is not currently.
