If you are looking for the real key to a happy marriage, look no further than the housework! Who does what, when, and how often—is the source of many a recurring marital complaint. Splitting chores 50/50 often seems like the answer, but couples who do that often find themselves as resentful and unhappy as couples who set up no plan for dividing the work.

Splitting the dishes, laundry, vacuuming may seem fair, but the line right down the middle can lead to more friction because no one is good and fast at all things. But when each person takes on every task they are good at, or better than the other person at, couples can gain time for the things they really want to do.

How do you and your spouse split up the household chores?
