‘Til work do us part?’: Domestic relationships in extended working life households

Nathan Hudson-Sharp, Andreas Cebulla, Lucy Stokes, David Wilkinson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Facilitating opportunities for a better work-life balance is one key route through which individuals may be encouraged to extend their working lives. Recent years have seen the expansion of a variety of employer-led supportive and flexible working practices that aim to reconcile the pressures of work and home life (Eurofound, 2017). However, while the work-life balance of older workers has increasingly become a focus of employer-related initiatives and research, little is known about the impacts of extending working lives on domestic divisions of labour.
