During the past 40 years, dual-income households have nearly doubled, and female breadwinning households are on the rise. In this discussion, we will cover the unique challenges dual-income couples face from the "second-shift" to the current child-centered parenting culture that place a strain on relationships. We will explore the ways gender, culture and the fear of failure impact couples and learn how to reprioritize your partner and self and increase a sense of parity and connectedness.
