How to tell someone they aren't pulling their weight in your relationship

INSIDER Logo By Lauren Schumacker of INSIDER | Slide 1 of 7: Equality in a relationship is something that's really important to a lot of couples. And if it's something that's important to you, but that you feel is lacking in your relationship, that's a conversation that you likely need to have with your partner. Knowing how to start that conversation, let alone how to prepare for it and where to take the conversation as you're discussing things, can feel daunting or even impossible.You don't want to unnecessarily hurt your partner's feelings - they're someone that you quite like, after all - but you still want to make sure that your own feelings are being heard and understood. Navigating the conversation sensitively and kindly and keeping it primarily focused on how you're feeling can help you get your message across without destroying the relationship entirely.
