Step 3: Review

The goals of this page are to:
Highlight any potential inequities in labour
Help partners identify ideas for changing how they split work in order to divide work fairly, and help people do more of the work they enjoy or find easy

The below chart shows the division of labour by approximate hours worked. Please bear in mind that, in your given context, a 50/50 split may not be optimum equity.
Hover over the chart above to see the exact estimated number of hours worked.
The below tables are intended to offer ways to redistribute work so that each partner spends more time doing tasks they enjoy or find easy, if possible. Ideally, the person who enjoys the task more and/or feels as though it takes less effort will do the most work on it, while maintaining the desired work equity in the pie chart above.
In an ideal world, each cell in a row would be the same colour. I.e. If one partner enjoys a task more and sees it as less effort then they would also the majority of that task.
