Working Couples

Gone are the days when it was expected of woman to exclusively stay at home, nurse the children, look after the household work and take care of the in-laws. Though the notion still exists but today's woman is also expected to help her husband to contribute towards the household expenses. And thus it is even tougher for women, for now she has much more responsibilities and her duties both towards her house and work has increased. Now a days women are more independent and do not like to be dependent on their husband. But this also leads to constant friction between the couple resulting into conflicts in the relationship. Thus to keep the marriage going, some sacrifices and compromises have to be made by both the parties. It is very often seen that the sense of equality and spirit of independence felt by the career woman results in ego clashes. Thus both husband and wife have to consider that every relationship requires co-operation, trust, understanding and responsibilities without which the marriage will not survive.

Following are a few tips that working couples should always remember in order to make their marriage tick.
