Balance is key…

After reading both articles, and reading some posts, here is a simple conclusion…

People (both male and female) tend to gravitate towards inbalanced lives.  It really does not matter if both spouses work or not.  If they have the ability to keep the household maintained along with being able to have a balanced family, social, religious, etc, etc. life, then the trend toward happiness goes upward.

For example, there are many households where both spouses work and carry outstanding careers.  Unfortuneately, when they decided to make financial decisions, they used both sources of income to buy that house that was a little more than a balanced household could afford.  Now, instead of being able to get additional help to balance the household, due to the lack of available finances, now someone or both parties have to carry double, or even triple duty, IE: career, household chores, insuring children are to activities on time.  There is never time for recharge, vacation, or family time.  This inbalance, creates another inbalance in the marriage.  You can understand the waterfall effect.

So, rather than complaining about one gender or the other, lets take a moment to review the balance in our households.  I would bet that it would not take long to find the root inbalance and a simple way to fix it.  Although the implementation of the solution might require sacrifice, the price of a happy, balanced, life is never to great.
