My boyfriend takes care of our dog while I’m gone, so I take her on walks and feed her when I’m in town and tell him not to worry about it. Gives him more relaxing weekends. I got super lucky though and found a guy that always makes sure I come home to a clean place and usually has something waiting on the kitchen counter (flowers, cupcakes, wine) when I get back from travel jobs. I think we actually get in less arguments because I travel so much, and we appreciate the time we get to spend with each other more. If you try to look at it that way, it makes it much easier.

Coming home to a clean place and dinner is always nice. My wife understands the job and the requirements and I take care of things around the house when I'm home to compensate. She has a semi-demanding job but she's in HR so travel and overtime isn't as prevalent. We always say to each other this is a team effort and understanding is required.

I take my boyfriend on lots of trips with the points I make from traveling. If I’m not seeing him most weekdays then it’s a nice consolation to be able to spend quality time together for free in the tropics more often than if I didn’t travel 😉

OP, thanks for the thoughts. Dogs and dishes are something we compromise on as well when in town. Also, leaving notes, making coffee in morning travel, and going to a new restaurant every other week are some ways we have coped. Less arguments is nice too
