There are endless pages of research and analysis gathered together to reveal the perfect recipe for a perfect sex life, a flawless marriage and everlasting understanding. But apart from everything, every piece of advice, every inspirational and motivational quote, life just happens and hazard throws us in a Neverland where we find ourselves disconnected by any previous belief.
Giant books reveal insightful thruts about how to spend a life together and spend it on valuable, meaningful and peaceful terms. But that seldom happens when you have a fulltime job, a child to take care of and a house that never cleans itself. Put some deadlines and some extra office hours on top and there you have it, the perfect pie that life throws in your face.
However, everything is not lost. Between a sleepless night, a deadline you have to meet, the dishes that started to smell funny and the child that never stops crying, you can still have some great sex with your spouse. A new study suggests that egalitarian couples who share between 40 to 60% of child care duties, from reading bedtime stories and diaper changing to arranging carpools and playing in the park, have both higher quality relationships and have much better sex lives.
A little bit of equality never did anybody no wrong, seemingly. Even if that husband of yours doesn’t look that hot when he does the laundry or even if your wife isn’t exactly sexy when she does the sweaty, dirty man’s job ( or well, she could look sexy) shared child care and administrative house chores could make both of you better satisfied with yourselves and with each other.
As study leaders comment, in almost every case, compared to having the female partner doing all the child care, couples who split responsibilities equally seem to have much better outcomes compared with the classic cases, where the dad is the provider and mom does all the food and cleaning. This takes individuals far from understanding each other, because their activities tend to be dramatically different. Egalitarian couples fight less and they have higher quality relationships. Overall, they are much more satisfied with their sex lives and they are much more satisfied with the amount of sex they are having.
Furthermore, even if the traditional couples have the same amount of sex, egalitarian couples are much more satisfied with it. Mutual support and fair split of house chores can do wonders! You can start to share child care duties equally for a happier sex life!
