You're Surprisingly Traditional
One might assume this new group of moms would be all about "having it all" when it comes to that elusive work/life balance and would have an equal split of responsibilities with their partners. For better or worse, however, millennial parents maintain a surprisingly traditional division of labor. Perhaps following a wave of career-minded women who quit high-powered jobs to return to domestic life or simply because it's still too difficult for women to return to jobs following a pregnancy, this group of moms spends half as much time in paid work but twice what fathers do on childcare and household maintenance. Although still a sizable discrepancy, a Young Invincibles report shows that the inequity is shrinking compared to previous generations.
