Moms typically manage the household, in most families. And although many significant others have stepped up, it’s often Moms when partnered with Dads, who have to ask & orchestrate those responsibilities. All that invisible work and the mental load we carry is exhausting. And planning everything can be as time-consuming as getting the work itself done.
The pandemic has put many relationships to the test over this issue. And the stress, anxiety, and tension within our partnerships, only add strain to our mental health & family dynamics.
I shared the couple’s data from our pandemic study with Felicia Kashevaroff, co-founder of Tendtask. And we discussed why so many couples struggle to find an equitable split and where all of that invisible labor time is spent!
