How I got my husband involved (with the house, the woo woo, and the romance)

I meet a lot of women who are completely exhausted. They are so overwhelmed with work, the kids, and all the things that go into running a household (lunches, laundry, dry cleaning, errands, doctors appointments, school paperwork, birthday parties – ACK!) that they don’t have any space for themselves.

When I suggest they get some help, they tell me they can’t afford it.

Then I say, “I meant, from your partner.”

Blank stare.

“Well, I guess I could, but, I don’t know, it’s just easier for me to do it.”

And then I tell them, “Your life doesn’t seem that easy right now.”

Then they either try to get away, or we can dive into a deeper conversation around it.

Gloria Steinem said it best:
“Women are not going to be equal outside the home until men are equal in it.”

This is a topic Jonathan and I have been working on since we’ve had kids. Even when he was working 90 hours a week, he played a huge role at home. And now that we both work full-time jobs with normal hours, we’re finding a new pattern that works for us.

We in no way have it totally figured out, but there are a few things we’ve done that have prevented us from drowning in resentment, and we want to share them with you!

So, tomorrow on February 13th at 8:30 PM EST, Jonathan and I are going to be on Facebook Live to talk about how we’ve navigated having a 50/50 partnership when it comes to work, kids, and home. It’s changed so much over the years, and we’ve made a lot of mistakes. We’re excited to share our pitfalls (and some wins!) so you can create a partnership that frees you up to have more space for you.

We’re also going to be talking about:

– The never-ending dance of, “I’m doing more!” “No, I’M doing more!”

– How to enroll your partner in more without being a nag.

– The key to him or her WANTING to do more.

– How I got Jonathan to join me on the Spirituality and personal development train.

– How I got Jonathan to support me and believe in my work at the beginning of my business.

– How we are currently trying to bring more romance, connection, and time together into our relationship with 2 kids (this is a total work-in-progress).

Every Valentine’s Day, Jonathan and I set intentions for our relationship, and we thought this week would be a great time for you to do the same.

I hope you can join us! Just click here at 8:30 PM tomorrow night!

Can’t wait to jam on this with you!

Love,
Sarah
