“Are you thinking about who is doing what in your relationship? It’s certainly a subject at every party I’m at. That’s why I was excited to listen to Eve’s book on how to divide household responsibilities with your spouse. It offers information on how couples should learn to divide up the workload of life more equally, so we can move into the world more completely!
It began with the list of Sh*t I do. Tired of being the “shefault” parent in charge of all facets of her busy household, Eve Rodsky counted all the unpaid, unseen jobs she was doing for her parents-and then sent the list to her husband asking for improvements. His answer was… substantial. Rodsky realized that it was not enough just to recognize the problem of unequal work on the home front: she wanted a solution to this universal question. This depended on her health, reputation, job, and marriage.
The outcome is Fair Play: a time-and anxiety-saving program that provides a whole new way to divvvide domestic roles for couples. More than 500 men and women from all walks of life are surveyed by Rodsky to find out what the unseen job in a family actually entails and how to successfully get it done. With four easy-to-follow rules, 100 household tasks, and a figurative card game you play with your partner, Fair Play lets you prioritize what matters to your family and who should take the lead from laundry to homework to dinner on every job.
“Winning” this game means rebalancing your home life, re-establishing your relationship with your significant other, and reclaiming your Unicorn Space-as in developing the skills and interests that keep you alive and exciting. Were you willing to try Fair Play? We’re going to deal with you.
