Work together as a team
In every couple, the spouses have different roles: one will almost inevitably earn more than the other, one may spend more time on domestic duties, etc. We need to appreciate the unique contributions of each spouse and work out the balance of responsibilities, so that both spouses can do their part in sustaining the household and the relationship as a team, according to their particular situation, skills, opportunities, and likes. They shouldn't criticize each other for not having identical criteria or abilities.
