Due to the increasing demands of the workplace, some couples experience problems due to the interference that work might have with couple or family time. The working spouse may feel the stress of a demanding job while the other spouse may feel that they are not the priority. In this Marriage Matters publication, we describe the increasing demands of a job or career and the impact it may have on the marriage, while also offering suggestions on how to balance work and family.
