Family is something that is, if not each of us, then for many certainly. Everyone understands what is meant by this word. A family is a union of people (at least two) based on blood relationship or marriage. That is the definition. And it is useful for everyone to know what family needs are met by joint work, as this topic concerns each of us.

Double power

So, the smallest and standard family consists of two people who have entered into marriage. After signing the papers in the registry office, they are considered to be native people. And what needs of the family does the joint work of the two satisfy? In fact - almost any.

Here, for example, housing. Each of us needs a roof over our head. And if neither the boy nor the girl had her before marriage, then it would be much easier to make money together for an apartment. In any case, the amount of 2-3 million rubles one person will save longer.

By the way, in terms of finances: in most families joint budgets are formed. Savings go to pay for utilities, the purchase of food, clothing.


This, too, needs to be mentioned when talking about the needs of the family that joint labor satisfies. The farm is the activity of family members in maintaining their housing and organizing their everyday life.

This includes the joint design of the apartment and its planning, the management of hired workers, if you can not do without their services, the organization of cleaning. Also, housekeeping involves planning and maintaining the notorious budget.

Washing the dishes, purchasing the necessary things and products for the house, then preparing food, washing the laundry, keeping the house clean, and household appliances and everything that goes into it is in good condition — this is also included in the joint work of children and adults. If the couple decided to get the "flowers of life", then care for them, education, training and everything that the child requires is also part of their mutual responsibilities.

But that's not all. What other family needs does joint work satisfy? This list also includes representing the interests of the union in different organizations (housing department, court, registry office, etc.), preparing legal documents, making visits to doctors, transporting household members to the right places at the stated time, and even organizing family holidays and meetings.

Segregation of duties

This is a very important topic. Many people live together for a while before entering into an official marriage - in order to understand in practice who can cope with what responsibilities and whether they are compatible in everyday life. But some do not even discuss this issue. And then it turns out that the wife does absolutely everything around the house, and her husband does nothing. Or vice versa. The types of joint work were listed above - and it is not surprising that later one of the family members is indignant that he has to do everything. Since the responsibilities are really very much.

Although, in fact, it is all the people complicate. Before marriage, each of the members of the union does everything previously listed for themselves. After the start of marriage, he needs only to not forget about the partner, that's all. And if each spouse is not able to do something, you just have to discuss it and decide who will take what on himself. It will be fair - duties should be divided equally. No wonder because the topic concerns what the needs of the family meetsjoint  work. Social studies, by the way, includes it in the course.

And the separation is very simple. Is a man very good at cooking? So, he will not only repair everything in the house, but also cook. And to teach his wife, then to alternate the process. The spouse will keep the house clean and buy groceries. The principle of separation is simple, the main thing is to evenly distribute the load on each family member.

About other needs

But besides the above, there is something else. More important than deciding who will wash the floors and who will bathe the cat. We are talking about emotional needs. Indeed, for the sake of their satisfaction, marriages between two loving hearts are concluded.

Ideally, spouses are passionate lovers, faithful partners and best friends. A strong foundation of their relationship is love, affection, trust and sincerity. Therefore, first of all, each of them should take care of the emotional and spiritual harmony of their partner, and also that their “light” should not be extinguished, but only flared up in the process of living together. This is important, but, unfortunately, this component is often killed by everyday issues.
