Published in 1998. This text focuses on "three-job" (two paid and one unpaid housework job) families. It investigates the
way in which partners experience and handle the contradictions in the daily running of the household - contradictions which
result from the conflicting features within and between society and the family. An equal division of household labour remains
at the heart of these contradictions as women take on the responsibility of running the family home in addition to paid employment.
