Partnership or Competition?
Does anyone else struggle with viewing marriage as a competition, not a partnership?
DH and I each have different things we do around the house. I feel like I'm always weighing my contributions vs his contributions. I worry that I'm not doing as much as he is--and we've had problems before with him feeling like I'm not doing enough but not having the guts to say so, so he just stews about it until he blows up... but that's another story.
I don't want to feel like I'm competing with my husband to see who is better/does more... but at the same time, I don't want to not pay attention and start leaving him to do more than his fair share. Do you think it's something that gets easier once you've been married/together longer, or is it just a personality thing?
