There are no two ways about the fact that chores are a drag – matter how much two people are crazy about each other and glad of sharing a home, still almost every couple would agree that the sight of dirty dishes piled high in the kitchen sink or bags of laundry waiting to be done are nothing to get excited about. However tacking even this unpleasant task can be made bearable if you can tackle the chores together.

List your priorities

No two individuals are exactly alike in personality and as parents too, there are bound to be differences. One may be a bit quicker to scold or to forgive. One may be more sensitive to appearances and propriety, while the other may focus on results. Problems though arise when parenting styles differ to the extent that the child starts receiving confused signals as to what he/she should and shouldn’t do, all of which is likely to lead to behavioral problems. So if you and your spouse often disagree on how to raise children, here are a few tips on finding a middle path.

Having a child of your own blood involves pretty powerful emotional and cultural connotations. So while you may be ready to bring up  someone else's biological offspring as your own child, your partner may not feel the same about adoption. Unfortunately this difference in priorities can create significant stress in a relationship. So if you find your partner is closed to the idea of adopting a kid while you wish to become a parent, here are a few things you can do.

The fragrance of scented candles wafts through the air, a bunch of roses perched at your windowsill is reminiscent of a memorable evening, the greeting cards that keep pouring into your mailbox for no particular rhyme or reason sends a euphoric thrill down your spine. Love, which was an all-pervading force in your life a few weeks ago, seemed to have faded into oblivion after an untimely end of a long-term relationship.

What seemed to be an eternal bond while it lasted, suddenly seems to be a meaningless relationship destined to be doomed.

Having a family is considered one of the most important ways building a network of love and emotional support in life. However there are many those who choose not to have children, either as individuals or together as partners. If you have just been made aware of the fact that your husband has a vasectomy, here are a few things you can do.

Why keep you in the dark

With no-fault divorces becoming universal and financial support virtually guaranteed to the less-earning spouse, husbands these days are rarely held back by social and moral compulsions if they have made up their minds to leave the marriage. And yet if you have shared a life, perhaps raised a family and you still love this man, there could be a few ways to convince him to stay and give your marriage another chance.

Don’t make a scene

Not so long ago ‘falling in love’ was widely thought to be the ultimate state of bliss; no matter how rich or poor you were, how pretty or plain-looking, it was as though the state of being in love put everything right – things might not always end the way you would like to but nevertheless just the experience of loving and losing was assumed to be better than never having loved at all.

Somehow you’ve just got what it takes. Women find you undeniably attractive and irresistible. Lucky you! Most men would kill to be in your shoes. But you’ve got a problem…you have a girlfriend! And women just seem to get a kick out of fawning over you when she’s around. You’re on uncertain territory – you’re unsure whether to enjoy the adulation and bask in it, or pretend like you didn’t notice it in the first place and that it’s no big deal!

And one of the most noticeable signs of the latter is when you begin to put off making love.
