Hiring a cleaner was one of the best things we did for our relationship. Resulted in less angst and arguments, and more time on weekends to spend together and with the kids... A great investment in our relationship.

With retirement, the question of partners pulling their weight became a source of tension. We ended up writing a list of what each partner did to contribute, and a list of what we did together. It turned out that neither of us had fully recognised the other's contribution. We re-jigged responsibilities and life is good!
