I like to think of my marriage as a partnership to which we both contribute. Finances are only a small part of it, we use our strengths for the benefit of the partnership and in areas where neither of us have any obvious skill we join forces and get by. My hubby has contributed more financially over the years and currently does the lions share of cooking and cleaning due to my ill health. I take care of finances and the day to day running of the home, I’m also the organiser in the partnership. I worked part time while our son was growing up and supported him academically due to his dyslexia then, more recently, acted as carer to two family members. Neither of us is subservient, we value what the other brings to the relationship and most decisions are discussed jointly – we rarely argue and if necessary compromise. This has worked for us for over 30 years and personally I wouldn’t have it any other way.
