You both work together. How do you maintain the work-life balance?
This balance exists more in our minds that in reality. If you feel comfortable and at ease with your personal and professional lives, without much guilt, then you’re balancing well enough!
As a couple, we are always striving to get there. What works for us is that we have fairly independent areas of working as per our strengths and we try not to interfere much with other person’s department. However, at the same time, we still need to tilt the balance a bit. We have set some default cases where if there arises a situation that requires a choice between work and home, I will take care of work and Rachita will take care of home, no questions asked. This understanding helps us manage both seamlessly. Secondly, we try to make our weekends fun as far as possible! Even if we are required to work on Sundays, we make an outing of it, like have meetings in cafes instead of office! To some extent, it changes the mood and fixes the balance.
