Abstract

Whilst recent years has seen a plethora of work-life and work-family balance researched performed in Australia and internationally, there is still much to understand about the intersection between people's work and non-work life. This paper contributes to this research and develops a research agenda couched in negotiation theory. Couples are continually required to address the changing nature of their work and family commitments throughout the life course. We begin to examine the manner in which couples negotiate the changes to domestic and paid labour arrangements at crucial junctures in their lives – specifically, the period when young children require significant parental support.
