A housecleaning service

Research out of the Harvard Business School has shown that house chores cause a lot of arguments among married couples. The feelings around who does more (or less) of these chores cause resentment, contribute to odd power dynamics, and in general, contribute to negative feelings and conversations. Your friends and family can’t pay for your home to be cleaned forever, but maybe you can have a place on your registry for them to contribute to a rather hefty fund for a cleaning service. You can remove the turmoil around this topic entirely if neither you nor your partner handle the dusting and the mopping.
