I love this post! Of course the conversation is not over yet, nor will it ever be. Relationships are dynamic and require a lot of daily effort.

It can be really tough to balance the scales, when one partner fiscally is the dominant leader in the household. Being a female, who makes more than my partner, and up until two weeks ago, was also in grad school, I have always been more than grateful for my partners support.

I have not cleaned a bathroom or bought groceries in over three years, three years, so I know that it is my turn to start making the household more of a primary focus in my daily life.

I think the reason why your words are igniting so much comrade online is because so many women are in the exact same battle as you, but you are inspiring them.

Your relationship and partner sound wonderful and I am glad to hear your reflections and thoughts changing.
