S3, ep.3 In this episode Alaina talks with her husband, Seth Gray, a man who Darcy Lockman, author of All The Rage: Mothers, Fathers, and the Myth of Equal Partnership would describe as a unicorn. The "unicorn factor" means that when it comes to household chores and labor, Seth and Alaina truly split the responsibilities 50/50.

"It's 50 percent of the mental workload and all of the other burdens that come with it," Alaina said.

"I would feel bad if I wasn't pulling my own weight, but maybe that's the problem, maybe everyone already feels like they are pulling their own weight," Seth said.

Stay tuned as Alaina and Seth discuss what having an egalitarian marriage really means and how to find your own "unicorn."
