Abstract

Frequencies, costs and strategies to handle a dual work/family priority was explored, based on domain centrality across domains. Using a mixed methods in a sample of 124 Swedish adults (age 32-34, 50% male), results showed that 36 participants (29%) had a dual work/family priority. Despite describing both inter-and intrapersonal costs, those with a dual priority did not report lower well-being or satisfaction. Thematic analyses showed a large number of creative strategies that the participants used to manage a dual priority, suggesting that it is possible to have it all without too high cost, at least short-term.
