Do not be the type of person to walk around keeping an eye on your partner making sure that he doing his share of the household workload.

You should instead see that it does not matter if one of you has to do more than 50% of the work that has to be done around the house. If you have to make sure that the workload is split 50/50 then so much tension will be put into your marriage that it may well breakdown.

So do not keep too much track or score points as to who does the most around the house.
