The Anderson-Underdunk Work Parity Wall Chart
(A Unique Aid for Blissful Marriages and Other Relationships)

As you know, Mrs. Underdunk and I have enjoyed a most satisfying long-term relationship characterized by the kind of egalitarian rationality that most people can only dream of. Now it is true that we are not married and are not glued to each other 24 hours per day, but we both have been married (Mrs. Underdunk for many years) and are therefore no strangers to the state. Moreover, we do spend a great deal of time together, and I assure you that we have had to work through many of the same mishaps, malfunctions, and technical problems that married couples commonly experience.

We have therefore decided to make public a means of sorting out one of the most critical issues facing the North American household. This issue underlies much of the friction and strain prevalent in contemporary marriages and other relationships. It is the issue of household work parity.

  • How many times have you and your spouse or "significant other" bickered over who is putting more into the day-to-day management of your home and relationship?
  • How many times have you heard: "Henry, I'm doing more than my share of things around here! When are you going to get off your a** and do something?!" or "Madge, I'm busting my tail around here. Do you think maybe you could get that phone out of your ear and lend a hand?" It gets pretty tedious, doesn't it?
  • Well, help is at hand! With the Anderson-Underdunk Work Parity Wall Chart™, you and your partner can easily calculate the relative effort each of you is expending to keep your relationship and home afloat--and easily balance the load

Here is a free random sample from the contents of the Work Parity Wall Chart™.
