Women who aren’t exhausted by “the second shift” and who feel like they are in a true partnership also have more energy for and interest in sex.

I’ve noticed since my husband and I are no longer monogamous that he now does more around the house. Breaking the marriage mold meant that a lot of unconscious rules, roles, and expectations went out the window. It’s been really good for us both, although I think you can stay monogamous and do this, but it will take more intention.
