Do you feel like you’re making less of a contribution to your family than your salary earning partner? Let my ranting convince you to give that crap up!

What if you find yourself in a totally dysfunctional relationship with someone you love? Do you run like hell, or can the relationship be saved?
Do you overreact over little things like your husband not taking out the garbage? When that happens, it’s never about the garbage, but about what the garbage has come to represent.
