Home is a sanctuary from work stress, right? Not always. Even if you are able to leave your projects and worries at the office, your spouse may have difficulty doing so — and that stress can rub off on you. How can you help your partner cope? What’s the best thing to say when your partner starts complaining — and what should you not say? Is there a way to help them see things differently? And how can you set boundaries so that home can be a haven again?

It is a must for everyone who is in a relationship with their spouse to take care of them without being asked or told. We are in a world wherein stress is inevitable and we must know how to handle it before it consumes us. It would be great if you can help your spouse cope with his or her work stress too.

So, the male is the one who gets stressed and the female is the one whose job it is to help him unwind?

So a picture illustrates the entire world to you? What about both eggs being white? What's your reaction to that?

I took the picture and the article in the context of me and my wife, and what I could do to support her.

Empathize and sympathize, but don’t compare your stress to your spouse’s. “When your partner starts complaining, don’t say, ‘Oh, you think your day was bad, listen to what I had to deal with!’ It doesn’t help anything.”

Why is the male looking egg cracked? Now I don’t want to read the article when I see the direct indication that stress at work is male! Should you have both eggs cracked ? Oh wait, she is a wife! It makes sense now!

Spare your misunderstood feminist rage to until you have read the article. Always a nice tip. Don't get too cracked on the way :-).

All work and no play is really stressful. Have time together doing the things that make you both happy.
