I’m looking for advice. How do couples deal with chores? Me and my boyfriend have been together for 6 years, and moved into our new house in August. Previously we had always lived in a small space so when one person did more than the other it wasn’t a big deal. Now that we have tripled our space and tripled the chores, we can’t seem to stop fighting about who should do what. Normally we have always been really good communicators and sort things out, but lately its constant bickering. Both of us feel that we should be doing more. We try and have constructive conversations about it, but we never seem to solve anything. He says he takes the outside, I take the inside, but there is so much more work to do inside with dishes, pets, laundry, etc. What chore agreements have people found helpful? Thanks! – Chore chaos in Cambridge
