There have been not a few articles in the press over recent months about the family tensions consequent upon ‘lockdown’, and of the minor irritations couples have found in living with their partners more or less all day and every day. Such situations inevitably intensify or magnify the domestic small change of life together.
It should be no surprise really as this is part of the human condition, and its universality in both time and space is brought out neatly by an online article I chanced upon today. It can be read at What was life like for a medieval housewife? and shows that in many, fundamental, ways life does not, mutatis mutandis, change that much.
