    You will find the middle ground. Talk with your spouse and let him know how your feeling, so you both can navigate through this. At the end of the day, look at what was important and start to eliminate those things that bring no value to both of your lives. Its amazing to look back and see that your refining your lives together. All the best!

    Knowing what your priorities are will help you find the kind of balance for you. The key isn't having equal time for every activity, but being fully present in each and every thing you do. So when you are at home with your partner make sure you leave your work in the work place. Be fully present and there for them. Make sure you do activities together and communicate. 

    Knowing what is important to you will help you make time for those things. If you had this same job before you got married your partner should expect the same if not a similar arrangement to what you had before you got married. 

    Make plans with your partner and keep them, keeping your word is an important part of strong healthy relationships. Communication is essential for a balanced life. Both you and your partner need to be on the same page when it comes to knowing what you expect from the relationship - talk about it and keep each other informed of how you're tracking.

    Join the club...nobody can do it maybe unless you work part-time hours because full-time job and running a household doesn't work out well for anyone who truly care about their home and family.

    Talk to the HR manager explain the situation and ask for a transfer to a different department . If that is not possible look for a job in another place and resign from the present place .Till such time you will have to manage with difficulty .

    Hmm, you must know if you figured out how to get married with the hectic job.  That is tough even for those with easy jobs.

    It is easier said than done but the key is to prioritize the right thing at the right time. ‘Stress diaries’ a book written by Dr. Rachna Khanna Singh, has been helpful in such work-life balance situations.
