The first step in making this situation work is to talk about it. Talk about any insecurities you may have whether it's participating in a video meeting or being eavesdropped on and what you need in terms of a work environment. Then create a schedule and set boundaries when it comes to separating work life and personal life.
"Have a more general conversation about concerns: what are you worried about vis-à-vis work -- your partner seeing you work being one of those -- and why you worry about them," said Jennifer Petriglieri, author of "Couples That Work: How Dual-Career Couples Can Thrive in Love and Work".
Tackle this situation like you would a challenge at the office: get organized, communicate and delegate.
That means defining everything that needs to be done, including child care, cleaning and cooking, and then delegating.
Having daily meetings to plan or assess the day or documenting all the responsibilities can help keep everyone on track.
4. Avoid treating each other like colleagues
You might be learning that your spouse is a fan of all the office clichés or holds too many meetings -- but it's best to keep that to yourself.
Even if you think your intentions are good, don't offer any unsolicited feedback when it comes to your partner's work style.
And don't mistake complaining as an opportunity to critique.
"Even if a partner is complaining about work, you shouldn't see that as an invitation or opportunity to provide critical feedback," said Anthony Chambers, chief academic officer at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. "Allow them to vent and be heard."
These working conditions aren't ideal for many people right now -- especially if you are juggling kids and other care giving responsibilities. It can feel overwhelming and exhausting, but try not to keep score of who is doing what around the house, or whose work is more pressing.
