Could pre-pregnancy contracts help save marriages? One woman says maybe.
Rebecca Onion, writer for Slate.com, suggests outlining expectations for diaper changing, feeding and late night wake-up calls could prevent aggravation, fights — even divorce.
Onion, a self-proclaimed feminist, said there is an “unfair cultural expectation that allows fathers to take time for leisure, while denying the privilege to mothers.” A pre-pregnancy contract could fix that.
Encouraging the father to learn how to cook and shop for groceries — as well as other chores women take on every week could alleviate some stress mothers feel, enabling them to have some much-needed alone time to recharge.
