I've Regressed: Marriage and Gender Equality in the Face of COVID-19

I’ve always thought of myself as someone who has a modern marriage. Three months into this COVID-19 situation, however, I'm starting to feel like I'm stuck in a 1950s sitcom in which my husband is a fun, lovable guy who can't wait to hang out with his male friends to get away from his nagging wife, and that I am a responsible, well-intentioned, but unlikeable wife who can't stop treating her husband like her elementary school student. 

Through my conversations with other entrepreneurs and VCs, I've learned that we're not the only couple that has regressed into this dynamic. 

How did we get here? More importantly, how do we get out? I recorded this podcast episode to unpack our regression.
