There are various combinations of domestic couples but usually the female will be required to run the household, provide childcare and family cooking while the male may take on the role of chauffeur, gardener, run errands and/or have silver service knowledge and/or butler skills. Couples who provide a wide range of services can make an efficient team to help with the running of your home.
Domestic couples live on site in self-contained accommodation and can provide home security and house-sitting while you are away, but it is also important to remember they will likely want to take annual leave together.
