Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch Jan 2005

Nf05-592 Both Partners Are Responsible For The Relationship, Kathy Bosch

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

Both partners in a marriage are equally responsible for nurturing the relationship and "keeping the spark alive." Too often society has placed this responsibility on the woman when it should be equally shared. Women often have accepted the "caretaker" role partially because of their connectedness with children and family; however, both partners have a great stake in the well-being of the marriage and should care deeply about keeping the relationship viable and healthy. One person cannot strengthen the relationship alone. It takes two working together to strengthen the partner relationship.

Some heat stress is unavoidable, but effects can be minimized if certain management practices are followed.
