91. How many hours do you work per week?

The importance of this question can’t be overlooked because the number of hours you work per day or week directly affects the time you spend with your family.

For example, a husband who’s decided to cater for all the financial needs of the family may have to work many hours to ensure this is achieved and the consequence is less time with the family.

During my own marriage meetings, I made it clear to my wife that I will be the man of the house and take care of all the resources of the family while she will be the nurturer and ensure everything in the house runs smoothly. This was agreed upon prior to our marriage so when I am working long weeks I know she understands why.”

Be keen to discuss with your partner what will work for the both of you.  You need to find a win-win for the both of you. You may need to work more hours while they may need to cut down on theirs. Find the right balance of what will work for you.
