Dual-career relationships go through three common transitions; and it’s how you prepare for and navigate these ultimately determines whether you succeed.
Slow down, see each other through fresh eyes, connect and love more deeply.
Understand your needs as a couple, recalibrate priorities and achieve your deepest goals.
Many of us are struggling right now. Family caregivers don't have access to paid leave or affordable child care and many caring for aging parents want to live at home but can't make it work. The term “sandwich generation” refers to young to middle-aged adults who are simultaneously raising young children and supporting their aging parents.
Even the strongest relationships are strained during the transition to parenthood. Couples can strengthen their relationship during this challenging time. The best predictor of marital sucess is the quality of friendship & felt sense of partnership in the marriage.
The unequal emotional labor and “invisible work” in marriage is a hot-button issue, but no one has offered a real solution to this dilemma, until now.
Fair Play outlines a system for how to divide up household tasks fairly, based on your needs.
Parenting young children and caring for aging parents takes a lot of time and energy – when you’re in the middle and trying to do both, it can feel impossible to make time for anything other than caring for others.
Providing care for an aging parent is often stressful. While it can be a time for siblings and other relatives to come together and provide mutual support.
The time has come for this cultural conversation. Fair Play provides a unique, solutions-oriented answer to rebalancing the domestic responsibilities at home.
