Tips for Thriving in your Marriage
|Quote of the Week||Quick Links|
“For most people, sacrifices and hardships are not a choice but a necessity – and tougher than ever because of the expansion of working hours. In 2009, married middle-income parents worked about 8.5 hours more per week than in 1979. Just as expectations about work hours have risen dramatically, so have expectations of how much time mothers will spend focused on their children. An employed mom today spends about the same amount of time reading to, feeding and playing with her children as a non-employed mother did in 1975.”
- Sheryl Sandberg, Author of Lean In and COO of Facebook
|What to Nurture|
I’m delighted that moms today spend as much time reading and playing with their kids as they did in 1975 – that’s so important!…but our lives are most certainly busier! And balancing it all is really hard. Something has to go – but here’s what it shouldn’t be – time spent attending to your spouse. Instead, say "no" to some requests for assistance from others.
