There’s no denying that sex is an important part of any relationship - but there’s also no denying that it can get a little less… well, frequent, after marriage.

And most couples will testify that their sex life plummets on the birth of a new baby.

But now researchers have revealed how to keep the spark alive after having children.

It’s surprisingly simple, too.

Are you ready for this?

For better sex, you and your partner need to split childcare EQUALLY between you.

Yup, that’s right; Dr Daniel Carlson, assistant professor of sociology at Georgia State University, asked couples to complete a survey.

He and his colleagues found that where women did more than 60 per cent of the childcare, both partners reported having less satisfactory sex - but where each partner did between 40 and 60 per cent of the childcare, both partners reported better sex lives.

Presenting his findings at a meeting of the American Sociological Association, Dr Carlson said:"One of the most important findings is that the only childcare arrangement that appears really problematic for the quality of both a couple's relationship and sex life is when the woman does most or all of the childcare."

Do you think that this could work for you and your partner?
