Let's be honest, being in a marriage or partnership is hard. And when you're raising young kids together, maintaining a healthy relationship comes with entirely new challenges. In today's episode, Dr. Becky answers questions from three parents on how to approach different struggles in relationships: from being a primary caretaker to balancing mental load to navigating clashing parenting styles. She provides actionable strategies on how to care for yourself and communicate with a partner, and reminds every parent that this feels hard because it is hard—not because you're doing anything wrong.
